Survivor Weekend Check In with Laurie Ann Smith May 28 2017 The shame belongs to the abusers and those that support them!
The shame belongs to the abusers and those that support them! For all my survivor friends who have no validation and no support, please be sure and reach out and get help. Do not suffer on your own and call a crisis line if you have to. We did not deserve to be abused. What was done to us was wrong and we are left to pick up the pieces of what is left of our lives. Please do not give up! Not EVER! Reach out, and do not let your abusers win this fight. You win this fight with ME!!
Today marks my ten year healing journey anniversary and I just wanted to spend a few minutes to encourage other survivors of abuse who may be hurting, struggling, and lonely to hold on, get help, reach out, and do whatever you need to do to be victorious in your journey! We must be our own best advocate and work towards getting our needs met and learning to cope and to care about ourselves. My main message is NEVER GIVE UP! Win this fight with me!
