STORIES OF SURVIVAL

Elise's Story of Surviving Domestic Violence

 

"It’s your story to tell, you don’t owe it to anyone. I tell mine because I want my words to give someone else hope. You are not a victim, you are a victory. Remember— you’ve made it through 100% of your bad days. You made it this far, you can keep going.”

Hannah's Story of How Being a Member of the LGBT+ Community Affected Surviving Sexual Assault

 

“Being gay does not justify terrible things happening to you. Owning who you are and everything that makes you YOU is the first step in healing. You don’t need to be ashamed of what happened to you.”

Jen's Story of Surviving a Stalker

 

“You need to tell someone. A lot of times victims will place blame on themselves. Place blame where the blame belongs. Nobody has the right to violate your privacy or to make you feel unsafe.”
