Survivors Speak is an interview series I have created which is dedicated to amplifying the voices of survivors of childhood trauma. Too often our voices are silenced, unheard, and ignored.
This is a place where you will be heard. This series will begin in July and will post every Thursday at 10am CST.
Why Survivors Speak
Our stories and struggles with PTSD in adulthood due to childhood trauma and abuse deserves a voice! What we live with is huge and it needs to be talked about.
Over the years, I have been approached a few times to share my story to other sites to support their mission of putting faces to PTSD, as they provide a platform for Survivors to share their stories. I was part of a book project and was published in 2018.
That’s what this series is about. It is a platform for those who want to share their story, anonymously or not.
It is Important to Share our Stories
One of the first pieces I had published to a site other than my own was a piece I wrote called 7 Reasons Why I Share my Story of Childhood Sexual Abuse on The Mighty. It was a piece inspired by a fellow survivor who has published her own book called Recovery In Real Time: A Trauma Survivors’s Anti-Workbook as well as a Grief Memoir.
Sharing our stories , even anonymously, can be empowering. Un-telling the lies that we have protected for so long and standing fully in our truth is one of the first steps towards healing, and we all deserve to heal.
When we share, we create power in numbers, and we create a space of safety and understanding for other survivors in need of that space. When we read each other’s stories, no only do we validate each other, but we also learn that we are not alone.
Let us also not forget, that sharing our stories and our struggles help our allies learn what it means to live with the psychological and emotional injuries that we do. It also helps them understand best how to help us heal.
