“So often survivors have had their experiences denied, trivialized, or distorted. Writing is an important avenue for healing because it gives you the opportunity to define your own reality.” — Ellen Bass
Sometimes I am stuck in my past, the flashbacks and anxiety can be overwhelming at times. Therapy has seldom been a place of revelation for me, and the flashbacks are magnified after a good talking session.
Writing has always been a comfort to me. This is a place where I find peace and safety while exploring my past and work toward realizing the beauty of my imperfect life.
