Discussion of sexual assault in this post

I met a survivor today who had never been told that she possesses inherent worth, or that there is value in her existence. No one had told her she wasn't to blame; no one had pointed out that the fact that she was still standing was testimony to her strength and courage.

My heart breaks for all the words she's never heard before now.

And I got to wondering - what would you like a survivor to know? What kindness would you want them to hear?

(my heart -& just as worth it for any abuse)
