#DidYouKnow It took 144 years

@kealasettle ・・・ 💪🏽♥️🔥 #repost@womenshistory with @get_repost ・・・ #didyouknowIt took 144 years from the founding of our nation for women to get the right to vote. It’s been 98 years since then, and women are still not at full equality. In the wake of the #metooand #TimesUp movements, women’s voices are being heard, but our stories, contributions and accomplishments are still left out of our country’s history. Visitors to a physical Museum on the National Mall in Washington, DC, will leave with a more complete view of American history and empower future generations—men and women—to have equal respect for all of our experiences and accomplishments and see there are no obstacles to achieving their own dreams. @kealasettle has her shirt!!

-Emergencia 123 ¿En qué le puedo ayudar? -Buenos días agente, estoy en un barranco VIOLADA. -¿Que está qué? -En un barranco de la 45, abajo de la Circunvalar, violada. ¡Por favor ayúdeme! -Usted se encuentra tomada? -Fui violada. No me puedo mover, ayúdeme por favor. Escalofriante. Así fue el crimen de Rosa Elvira Cely. Violada y asesinada brutalmente. Nos conmueve saber que fue violada y que cuando llamó para dar parte de la situación, fue re victimizada e ignorada. La violencia de género esta presente en todos los escenarios, no debemos de luchar ni un sólo día por erradicarla. #niunamenos #MeToo #TimesUp #noalaviolencia @parlamentoandino @onumujeres @mujeresdeasfalto @no_violencia_femenina @derechosdelamujer_ @americaferrera @emmawatson

allurefairy's Media: The least you can do, as a female is not shun other women when they speak up against sexual harrass

The least you can do, as a female is not shun other women when they speak up against sexual harrassment. Not only Meesha, but tons of other girls including blogger Humna Raza has spoken out against Ali Zafar sexually harrassing them. Meesha Shafi, a grade A singer. She has fame, she has fortune. Why would she in her senses frame a man for publicity? You want to hear Ali Zafar's side of the story? He will deny. Obviously. What does that prove? If Meesha isnt fortunate enough to have a camera fitted inside her eyes so that she can record every act of sexual misconduct to provide as proof, Ali Zafar isnt either. Why should his word be credible? Why should Meesha's word be credible? Other girls have come out in support and agreement. Ali Zafar's old misogynistic tweets have resurfaced which prove he's not new to female degradation. Just because he is married and has a kid does not mean he's not able to do anything of the sort. The #MeToo movement in hollywood is enough proof that men love to play on their God complex. They know a woman can't prove shit if she is abused. I, for one am Team Meesha because there is no sane reason why a person with her level of fame and success would do something of the sort for 'publicity'. We need to get rid of men who think they can get away with anything. #TimesUp #MeToo P.s I have reposted this from @talkingtraash agree with her every single word 🦋

For a while when I first started out with ig activism, I always thought the whole ‘blame it on the clothes’ thing was going away, maybe because I was mainly surrounded by other feminists and leftists who were just as rightly against it as I was. Then one day I went into the comment section of this woman’s photo, in which she was wearing a pair of underwear that read ‘clothes don’t equal consent/not asking for it’ or something along those lines. In those comments were a bunch of disgusting people claiming that they were against rape, but that a woman was partially to blame if she got raped while wearing this. That she would be tempting men. That, in a false attempt at some sense of equivalency, you couldn’t leave a plate of cookies out on a table and expect someone not to take one. That she shouldn’t have worn this if she didn’t want to be raped. That men can’t help themselves. I’m not making this shit up or exaggerating — I wish I was. But it was just as bad as I had imagined. Apparently in the eyes of some (not just men but there are rape apologist women too!), womens’ bodies in minimal clothing are equivalent to cookies. Or dog treats. Other inanimate objects. Don’t they see how horribly wrong this is? They’re literally saying that men are like animals who can’t control themselves. They get angry when women say these things, but they are the ones actually perpetuating that argument. As a last PSA: it doesn’t matter what le FUCK you were wearing — you did not, and never will, deserve to be raped or sexually assaulted. I don’t care if you were naked or covered head to toe. Not an excuse EVER. • • #feminism #equality #marchforourlives #womenempowerment #blacklivesmatter #blackempowerment #equalrightsforall #fuckthenra #loveislove #lgbtq #gayteen #animalrights #environment #immigrantrights #dreamers #fucktrump #policebrutality #guncontrolnow #poc #indigenousrights #resist #activism #blm #transgenderrights #timesup

#Repost @peaceovrviolnce ・・・ Imagine having to think twice before picking up the phone or seeking help after experiencing sexual violence?  Being able to seek help should be something everyone feels safe and comfortable doing. However, we must acknowledge the different ways that certain classes, races, genders, and social economic groups hesitate out of fear. To end rape culture, we must build communities where individuals live free from violence and fear from reporting if violence occurs and have access to proper resources to help heal. It is our mission to advocate for equal treatment for all survivors and victims. Want to learn more?

#30daysofsaam: My voice has the power to say that this is not how my story will end. My voice has the power to choose LIFE over death. My voice has the power to share my story, to be a voice for the voiceless. My voice has the power to choose redemption and forgiveness, no matter how hard it might be. My voice has the power to say that survivors are strong & brave & walk a path that not everyone understands. My voice has the power to say MY truth, whether others believe it or not. My voice has the power to say I believe survivors.

karentangmd's Media: J. Marion Sims was one of the early "founders" of surgical gynecology.  Horrifically, he developed

J. Marion Sims was one of the early "founders" of surgical gynecology. Horrifically, he developed surgical techniques for fistula repair by experimenting on slave women, without anesthesia. His statue was recently removed from Central Park. NPR covered this story, and one of the parts I loved most in their article was including a poem written by writer and professor @bettinajudd - swipe left to read it. 👏❤ Dr. Judd experienced severe pain requiring surgery for ovarian torsion, and also experienced skepticism about her pain from medical professionals. 😦 As a pelvic pain specialist, EVERY DAY I see women who tell a story of not being believed about their pain, or experiencing suboptimal surgeries that leave them in even more pain. It's heartbreaking. But I love how this poem reclaims something: Sims "invented" the speculum used in Gyn exams. This re-framing of the story showed that it was Betsey (one of the three slave women) who "invented" the speculum, not Sims - it was her pain that opened a window revealing the experiences of her own and others' bodies. There are so many nuances to this poem, it's incredibly poignant. 💔 Also, thank you to @npr for covering this story in such a thoughtful way. #pelvicpain #chronicpelvicpain #timesup #gynecology #endowarriors #jmarionsims #goodriddance #womensvoices #somedoc #womeninmedicine

Today’s episode of ClassyGlam was one for the books. @whambamglam247 and I discussed a topic that has plagued our culture for years, and it’s about time we speak up. Rape, and specifically gang rape, has been prevalent in India for a long time. We did our homework to understand the root causes, and we were disturbed, disgusted, and disappointed that there are people in the world who truly believe women only exist for their disposal. I am NOT an inanimate object. Today, I stand up for not just for women, but for humanity. The practice of selling women, killing women, and marrying off young girls is heinous and barbaric, there isn’t anything human about it. After today’s show, a few of my cousins from India reached out and applauded me for speaking out against this issue that clearly hurts so many people in our country. No, I’m not a politician. No, I’m not able to change an archaic mindset overnight. However, I have a voice. We all do. I hope when you have the opportunity to exercise that privilege that you do, because it’s the only way we can make a change. Do not allow this mentality to continue. Speak up. Check out today’s episode on IG Live. 🖤 #timesup

Day 19: #30daystofreedom::healing is possible:: When I experience new feelings of joy I remind myself I am only touching the shore of what I've never felt. Beyond my vision is a vast ocean of new experience; even if I haven't felt those waters. There are depths I'm free to spend my life exploring. We are our own healers—skilled support is invaluable in helping guide us in the dark—but we hold all our own light. I found enough love in my heart to fill the void of my heart break & abandonment. I found myself whole and able to give myself the home my heart longed for. I spent a long time trying to erase my abuse, edit my life, wishing it didn't happen. Today I can sit in peace with my past because I know I am not tarnished. I surrender to my truth and stand in the sun; I can celebrate how resilient I've had to be to survive some of the worst violence & atrocity imaginable. I want to freely share because, although it's been very difficult to understand this; my story is beautiful and triumphant and I have nothing to hide. Just because so many are still at the mercy of their fear & denial, and can't handle me or my story, doesn't mean I'll stop being who I am—I waited all my life to be who I am. I give myself permission to now put down the old paradigm of fear & hiding. When I feel lost I make decisions as someone who IS fearless & free, so I am always moving closer to being that person. I need only to draw on the well of strength that kept me alive. Walking becomes sprinting, healing becomes living, speaking becomes free as breathing. Survivors of abuse are amazing and beautiful and of this world. We deserve space in our society to be seen, heard, and believed. When that space doesn't exist—as it so often doesn't—I demand it by making it within myself. We have the ability cradle our own hearts, to be tender with ourselves as we heal. Healing then gives us strength to hold space for others who, in their own time, are ready to begin liberating themselves. We have everything we need within us yet we don't have to do it by ourselves. Our future is not dependent on our past, we can empower ourselves & each other to create the life we dream of and deserve.

🚀 The American Revolution was a colonial revolt that took place between 1765 and 1783. The American Patriots in the Thirteen Colonies won independence from Great Britain, becoming the United States of America. They defeated the British in the American Revolutionary War in alliance with France and others. ________________________________________ 💕 "Anything worth having is worth fighting for" 🤔 .... That's something the Elders always said when I was young. ✌(....even folk who are low key "fighting"/grinding to maintain the established way of living are revolting against change. ...even folk who are revolting against the establishment are "slaves" to their desire for independence.) IT'S ALL CIRCULAR (in nature and in reasoning). Which is why so many debates on these topics just go around and around and around in circles! Which is what a REVOLUTION is, a circle/cycle. Makes sense to me. It is what it is. Lol. 😊 _______________________________________ "Some people don't want......."

The #time100list of influential people was released this morning and one thing stood out to us: There was a whole lot of FEMALE POWER in there. Though we can't showcase them all, here are a few women on that list that we feel should be acknowledged: 1. @TiffanyHaddish: Being homeless and living in her car didn't stop her, she never gave up. She didn't give in. She pushed and reached and is now one of the top female comedic forces in the game. 2. Nice Nailantei Leng'ete: Instead of giving up and following the norm of living in a male- dominated community she fought to get an education to help change the lives and well-being of women around Kenya having saved an estimated 15, 000 girls from FGM and child marriage. 3. Greta Gerwig: American actress, writer and director. Her first solo directorial debut for, #LadyBird, earned her a wide array of awards and nominations. She was the fifth woman in history to be nominated in the best director category at the Oscars. 4. @CarmenYulinCruz: The mayor of San Juan, she became the voice of Puerto Rican citizens in the face of tragedy. With no outside help, it was her words that got the crisis the attention it needed. 5. @TaranaJaneen: A voice for girls and women all over the world. She is the pioneer of the #MeToo movement and was dubbed one of "the silence breakers" as the @Time Person of the Year.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 18: #30daystofreedom ::darkness holds the brightest light:: When my life comes to an end I will

Day 18: #30daystofreedom ::darkness holds the brightest light:: When my life comes to an end I will have had the fortune of dying twice. To begin accepting my reality I've had to tear down everything I thought I knew about myself: my life; who I could trust; who loved and protected me. In every sense—I had to die. When I was in the throes of darkness—a visceral underworld of migraines and returning memory—I wished I could have a funeral for myself and invite my friends; just to make it official. To die during life is a harrowing, singular path. I walked myself to the threshold: a place where it feels there is no ground or meaning to anything. Miracles happen in that liminal space for those who become a pioneer in their own lives. By walking ahead bravely with my eyes and heart open I was able to transmute my fragments and emerge the person who can handle my truth and perform the alchemy of transforming pain into joy. It feels like I've been handed an unlimited amount of heartbreak, but the extreme nature of my experience afforded me the blessing of deeply excavating my conditioning. Trauma demands we face our shadow self. Once I could welcome my darkness home the two parts of my being met, affording me a glimpse at my soul. I saw myself in the tornado of all those years of violence. My eyes are inhabited with the knowledge of my soul, not blank as I had thought. I saw my face as calm and peaceful amidst the violence swirling around my body. My soul said "you will never destroy me." Something incredible happened the day I remembered myself: the light was more vivid; life felt hyper-real. I shed a layer of dissociation and realized that amid the destruction I had been weaving a beautiful world for myself with a loving husband and beautiful son by my side; a real family. For the first time in my life I allowed myself to feel safe, loved, alive, and still: a sensation I couldn't have imagined possible...a miracle. That sunlight has never left my face since. Darkness' secret is it holds a blinding light, a beautiful gift.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 17: #30daystofreedom ::Master of invisibility:: When I spoke the truth I was told I didn't make

Day 17: #30daystofreedom ::Master of invisibility:: When I spoke the truth I was told I didn't make sense. THIS was MORE traumatizing than the physical abuse. I began to believe I couldn't construct sentences, I spoke less & less. I still tend to speak low. It's a feeling that grips me in the moments after posting; I feel convinced no one can read it, that it's all gibberish. With every post this feeling is subsiding. There was a period of my childhood when I barely spoke. A teacher said she didn't know who I was after being in her class for 6 months. I was a master at becoming invisible: the world understood me as a nice, quiet little girl. I felt a lot of pressure to be perfect so I squeezed myself in that box. I felt like a moving target. I hoped if I got close to disappearing I might be hurt less. Dissociation made me feel like I was entering patterns on the wall, I thought it was the state of my being. This is a painting I did in college. Fading to the background—there were times I was scared I would vanish all together. One of the first things I ever told my therapist was I think people can't see me when I walk into a room. I was shocked to hear myself say it. I didn't think too much about these posts before I started because I thought no one would see or read them anyway. The older I got, the more frustrated I was that I couldn't be smaller, and that I couldn't completely enter imaginary play. Playing was a stressful mission of survival to leave my body as much as I could. Now I watch my son with utter amazement as he plays lightheartedly: it's beautiful to see him free of all the burden I carried. Saturday he asked me to run with him in the park, I tried to imagine the freedom he feels, it's closer then ever. Today I feel weight in my body when I move through the world, I don't feel horror when someone responds to my presence. I feel a deeper calm then I have ever known. It was necessary I be small during all those years of survival, because if I was small & didn't matter then my abuse was small & didn't matter. I had to allow the enormity of my abuse to take up space before I could access peace. Today I am much larger and more powerful then my abuse.

Day 16: #30daystofreedom ::It's an atom bomb:: *Trigger warning: child sexual abuse* Being raped as a child is no different in severity than a soldier surviving a bomb that blew apart fellow soldiers, no different than someone surviving a car wreck and seeing their family get mangled. No one would question that the person's recall is difficult or nonexistent at times, that their experience is warped or out of time. The body & mind go through great lengths to protect us from such horrendous earth shattering imagery, emotions, & sensation. To a child who can't fathom the act of rape, sexual violence is nothing short of an atom bomb set off at the very center of their being, inconceivable horror & darkness that leaves nothing untouched. Rape & dissociation mangled my being, blew holes in my brain. I don't have the words to accurately describe that horror. The pain was so horrendous it took me 30 years to understand what happened. At a very young age I faced my death. It's an urgency that stays with me, even now it tries to convince me I won't be able to finish these posts before my life is taken. I've cried exasperated tears of relief, hope, & strange joy: tears that say, "I am still here, I got away with my life." I know deeply what it feels like to have your life when all the odds were against you, It's a kind of guilt I've heard soldiers back from war speak of; it asks, "Why me? Why do I still get to be here?" Now I am so grateful to understand this collection of experiences that felt so confusing, so disparate from each other, so alien & bizarre, so painful, so otherworldly that when I could not make sense of them, I longed to forget them. I pushed them way down in the depths of my being so I could survive. It is hard for our brains to fathom what humans are capable of living through. It's even harder for us to comprehend we can heal from such bombs in our life. The message in my heart is that healing is possible. Here on the other side the sun still shines. Every day I reclaim more, harvesting the ash from destruction, using it to nourish the soil, cultivating life. I am here, against all odds. I have joy in my heart, against all odds. (collage by me)

Day 15: #30daystofreedom ::oppression//resilience:: There is a monstrosity contained in the word oppression; the darkest, realest definition of oppression is a weight so heavy, so encompassing, so life threatening that you drown in it but you keep on living. It envelops you until it becomes your very sun and sky. Until it's poison is the air you breath. An underworld, a negative print of life. You are so immersed it is the only normal you know, then it steps into the background and steals your voice. You forget it's there. It seems you share this world but there's a place you occupy where no one can reach you. You know you can't breath, that you can't speak, but you can't remember what is killing you. Because it's all you've ever known. The deepest, darkest oppression is the one you have no idea even exists. Child sexual abuse is a plunge into some of the darkest waters humans invented. I lived there. I was born there. There were times I wondered if this world was only hell. It was a question too sad to even ask, I was so scared of the answer. So I put it all away. I'm pulling it all out now, laying it all on the floor, combing through. Now I can pick what can go and what can stay, what is really me and what was my trauma, someone else's pain. I can sift through the darkness and pull out the diamonds born of all that pressure. I can see how much magic and beauty was packed in there, I was caught in the constant motion of crisis and I lost sight. We have an amazing ability to persevere in darkness, it's our nature to be that flower flourishing in a crack in the sidewalk. Overcoming oppression is what humans do so beautifully. I walked through fire, I'm ready for cleansing waters, for stillness. Now I am my priority. When liberating yourself from oppression and abuse don't turn around for anyone. Unless it's for a piece of yourself you lost. Anyone you truly have will be walking beside you, you won't have to look for them. (photo by me)

Day 14: #30daystofreedom ::anger:: Yesterday was a warm spring day, one of my most painful PTSD triggers: the warm breeze, sunshine, sounds of summer approaching, motorcycles, birds, the ice cream truck. Every spring I couldn't just be excited about warm weather, sprinklers, and ice cream. Nothing was ever simple for me. Everything was drenched in foreboding and dread. I have never ever run care free through the park. Today I'm angry. I'm angry I've had to work so hard, that what was done to me was so enormous and terrible that I've suffered in more ways than I can count for 35 years, that it was so huge that I have to do something huge and exhausting like writing every day about it for 30 days to help me reclaim my voice and my life. I'm angry that eyes divert when the subject is raised. I'm angry at the silence. When I was young I had a symbol for my anger—a figure, a shape in my mind—because it was before I had the words to express the deep, wild feeling my body held, and because it was so stifled. I've carried this symbol in my mind with muted desperation. I've endured some of the worst horror humanity has been able to dream up, and then ignore; my anger is completely validated. My mind and body experienced the darkest dark. I didn't deserve it and I didn't create it. But I refuse to be poisoned with anger. How can I spend my life holding on to anger in my heart for a powerful history of violence that existed long before me? My power lies in choosing myself. Why should I lay down and die because of awful things awful people did to me? It doesn't make any sense. I deserve my life. Much of my anger comes from being so compressed— made so small, so silent. I respond to my anger by taking up more space, by using all the words and time I need to express myself. We cannot deny our anger; we have to feel it, own it, let it run its course. Anger is opportunity for movement. I am carefully spinning my anger into power, into a golden thread I weave into my life, into all I do and say. It reinforces all the love & beauty I find. It keeps me present and alive, it gives me a push when I need, it helps me keep rising, keep speaking, keep advocating, keep living the hope.

Day 13: #30daystofreedom ::My body was a prop:: I was trapped where ​everyone acts as experts on other people's experience; where every interaction is abusive because it's set on a stage created for hiding secrets & silencing; where speaking is not for communication, only for dominating ​& correcting behavior to fit a narrative. It's an oppression so powerful I would need a level of dissociation just to be in the same room; I would feel suffocation just speaking with them. I freed myself of that tireless web of distortion. Now I see I don't need them, I never actually had them: it was an illusion. I don't desire any "family" that comes with abuse. Now it doesn't matter what they say or do, they can never hurt me again. I have created my own family from the deep knowing of what it could be, a knowing they could never erase, kill, or brutalize out of me. As a little girl I had a clear vision of a new life, I never doubted I would get to exactly where I am today. My body was used as receptacle for others' pain ​& a prop to create an illusion of normalcy to hide ugly secrets. Now I am finally reclaiming my body, acknowledging the pain it holds as no one ever did. I hated my body because I failed to see it as the beautiful vessel of protection & spirit that it is. My body has always been on my side--promising me life--it gave my son life. Even amidst the suffering ​& denial it moved me through the world ​and afforded me connection with amazing people who inspired me, who believed in me, who have helped lift me now as I grapple with my trauma. Our bodies hold all the understanding of our experience and the wisdom of what we need to heal. Victims of sexual abuse are especially disconnected from their bodies, it's hard to know where to begin. I started by simply noticing my physical ​& emotional pain, ​and bearing witness instead of numbing as my abusers taught me. I respect what my body is trying to tell me, I listen, I allow feeling to wash over me because I know it's moving ​ and I will come out the other side with more space to feel something else. I am closing the gap between me and my body. I am building trust. I am recognizing how strong it is.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 12: #30daystofreedom ::Remembering:: Events arose that made me perform the mental acrobatics it

Day 12: #30daystofreedom ::Remembering:: Events arose that made me perform the mental acrobatics it took to finally understand that people I trusted deeply were abusing me emotionally & psychologically. I cut ties. Once I had some distance of space & time from my abusers my body took the signal it was safe and it all started to return. I am still in awe of the process I am going through to call back the fractured pieces of myself. My being has been a kettle boiling with repressed emotion & horror. My mind only ever gives what I can handle, letting the steam out in short bursts so I don't buckle under the weight of the entirety of my truth at once. The first memory broke through in a therapy session like a freight train, with utter detail & clarity, it felt like it slammed me to the ground. It took me weeks to get back on my feet. Then memories started to file in, the majority of them came in a 6 month period. Some still cryptic, some clear as day. Some are emotional memory, these can be the most difficult. It's beyond strange to remember something that feels shockingly new yet deeply familiar: things I had always known. The hardest memories came with excruciating migraines. I would see an image from a dissociated episode then the scene would emerge over a few hours--more detail in coming days & weeks. I still get more memory all the time; sometimes it's just mundane things, other moments of my childhood. I've made peace with the process and no longer resist & fear it as I had. I know now that there's nothing that can break me so I am no longer afraid. I've learned to welcome memories and be thankful for the valuable information they give me about who I really am & what has really happened to me. They are pieces of a shattered child coming home at long last to be whole. I have an acceptance of the horror I endured & the extreme measures I took to survive extreme circumstances. I have the great fortune of being intact & having clarity of mind after what I went through, it feels like a profound privilege that I still have my life & can speak so clearly. I feel no choice but to speak loudly for those who can not. It blows my mind every day how fucking lucky I am.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 11: #30daystofreedom ::The world as a loaded gun:: I was a child trying to navigate ​the world

Day 11: #30daystofreedom ::The world as a loaded gun:: I was a child trying to navigate ​the world with the weight of PTSD on my back, the ways I suffered as an effect of my abuse are infinite. When abuse is so extreme you can not expect a child to verbalize the actual reason they are​ ​terrified, their fear is projected anywhere it will fit. I moved through the world in a state of quiet hyper-vigilance. Everything, the most mundane things, were a potential threat. I thought my home would betray me & suddenly swallow me in flames. I was terrified no one would come home, I felt so alone I couldn't fathom being even more alone. Social activities were terrifying because I didn't know what people would ask me & my dissociation made it hard to think. I dreaded gymnastics & dance class because if the teacher held my body in position I felt like I couldn't breathe. 3 adults couldn't hold me down at the doctors, I would kick & flail. Haircuts were terrifying because the stylist might see the wounds on my scalp from my anxiety induced picking. When I was assaulted my mind would tell me I was being electrocuted at random from the inside out, so I was terrified of lightning. I developed severe hypochondria, later food textures triggered me into dissociation & I was constantly scared I was being poisoned. I was basically terrified of anything I didn't have control of: being in a car, plane, or boat. Later I grasped at control with bouts of anorexia. I would cut my wrists just wanting my sadness to stop. Sometimes showering terrified me, other times I would shower too much trying desperately to rid my body of the horrible things done to it. Later drinking & drugs helped keep my mind foggy when PTSD was too painful, smoking helped me cope with my anxiety. And so much more. With the pressure put on me to appear normal I was masterful at keeping all my pain & my coping mechanisms hidden. It was my normal; I always smiled for pictures. Survivors deserve support for healing our PTSD. We deserve to be believed. We do not deserve to feel shame for being assaulted & then more shame for our coping mechanisms, for the ways our body & mind kept us alive. We deserve peace.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 10: #30daystofreedom ::Speaking in pictures:: *Trigger warning: child sexual abuse* Growing up

Day 10: #30daystofreedom ::Speaking in pictures:: *Trigger warning: child sexual abuse* Growing up I was constantly drawing, funneling my concentration into crayon to paper was an escape. My pictures were also a tool to buy the attention I needed so desperately, only recently did I realize why creating art still puts so much tension in my body, because I felt if people weren't pleased with my drawings I wouldn't be loved and would die. I never knew how to create for myself, I am still trying to heal my expression. When I got to college I was asked to create authentically for the first time, it was a crushing experience because I was still cut off from myself & I couldn't access my story. For one assignment I did some paintings as an exercise in stream of consciousness, this is one here. In recent years I looked at this painting I had cast away and it took my breath. I had painted a scene from my abuse, my eyes pinned open, body frozen staring out the window at a telephone pole with birds on the line. Hard to see here but I drew the pipes I saw as I entered the wall with my mind. I was always layering white paint on color and collage like this representing my dissociation. My whole life looking at a telephone pole might make me want to cry or run, I just filed this away under the many ways I was strange. I submitted this painting for our printed senior portfolio. I was being raped before I could fathom what it was, I had no words for what happened, I spent years with a therapist describing cryptic imagery, strung together fragments of dissociated moments of abuse. There was one time around 12 I was able to hold my reality and my new awareness together long enough to muster the words " What don't you understand, I am being raped." the reply was, "Don't use such profane language". Clearly words didn't work so I stuck with pictures. After my posts last week I kept waking up to check if they were still there, I was sure my words would just disappear. A year ago I could barely talk about this in full sentences, it was hard for me to imagine I would be able to post like I am today. Im hopeful for what I might be able to do in another year from now.

Day 9: #30daystofreedom ::He asked me to remember myself:: Children will give an infinite number of chances to receive love​. Even as an adult I kept holding out that I still might be loved​ so about a year ago when I got the message that people were denying my abuse​ (again)​ I fell apart. I was with my son at our local library, it took all my energy to pick the pieces of myself up & walk us home. I wasn't able to be present with my son that day​, there were many days like that. ​Trauma hinders us from caring for our children as they deserve ​because we are distracted by our sadness, susceptible to projecting our anger ​& fear​; t​his is the vicious cycle​ of intergenerational trauma. The birth of my son was the ultimate catalyst for my liberation. His beautiful soul came into my life ​& asked me to remember who I was so I might finally protect myself; & in turn protect him. What my son needs more than anything is for me to be free & love myself because children ​l​earn through example, they absorb our ​condition. Seeing my son's sincere innocence and dependency on me finally helped me understand I was no different. Now my son is the litmus test for if my intentions are aligned with freedom & peace. If I am not sure if I am treating myself with love, I ask myself if I would treat ​him that way. I don't want hatred ​& anger in my heart because I don't want it in his. I absorbed a legacy of trauma & abuse with my entire being to protect him, I went to war & returned with a message of peace, not continued war. If I​'m lost ​he reminds me why I do the work​,​​ with a phrase or ​by ​taking my hand after a hard day. ​Recently ​while ​reading him stories​,​ he said, "Mama, I want you to talk louder." He ​reminds me of everything I need by letting me know what he needs​, my healing ​reflects in his thriving. It's breath taking how much destruction a person is capable of in a few moments of a child's life. It's a miracle how much freedom we can afford our children if we liberate ourselves. My abusers tried to destroy my life, my son saved my life.​ ​I will be forever grateful for the gift of life my son gave me.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 8: #30daystofreedom ::Healing as a living process:: Sleeping & eating have been very difficult

Day 8: #30daystofreedom ::Healing as a living process:: Sleeping & eating have been very difficult this week, words flood my mind constantly, I've been writing day and night. My body is scrambling to acclimate to this new depth of freedom & my mind struggles to grasp a new reality of being so seen & heard. On Friday I was literally brought to my knees sobbing in the full body relief of the world finally entering the room in my mind where I have been locked with my abusers my entire life. Since then my mind is quiet but my body is wrung out in fear, waves of heart palpitating anxiety wash over me repetitively. After yesterday's post I kept thinking I smelled smoke, a PTSD symptom I've suffered my whole life. Today these very familiar experiences are different because I can point a finger at the origin & let these emotions move through and out my body. My healing has taught me to make friends with my body and these difficult sensations to guide me to truth and what needs to be uncovered & released. Pain is not to hurt me, but inform me. Today when I followed those body signals I found I was feeling guilt of not protecting my abusers as I was conditioned to do. It is very easy to brainwash a child. It is very difficult to reverse brainwashing as an adult. I undo conditioning by gently pushing myself into unknown freedom & then calling back to the rest of me still frozen in fear, that dance of healing is what these posts are. There is no part of life separate from healing, every moment brings an opportunity to push a little further and heal. Days like today I remind myself that healing is not a repeating loop of pain, but an upward spiral motion, with every revolution I may have repeated symptoms but I am still rising and progressing. Enduring abuse is far more painful than accepting and healing from it, enduring and surviving can be never ending. Healing is progress, upward movement, expansion and life. Acceptance is breathing again. Today the pain I feel is not from committing to these posts, not from being stuck, it is from releasing. I know I am exactly where I should be because this is the path to fearlessness. @apaththroughfire

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 7: #30daystofreedom ::children can not save themselves::
Soldiers have machine guns to cling to

Day 7: #30daystofreedom ::children can not save themselves:: Soldiers have machine guns to cling to, I had a stuffed rabbit I named Badina (my attempt at bunny). She was my lifeline. I always remembered the dread that would envelope me at night, as soon as the sun got low panic would set in. I still have pangs of PTSD at dusk although less and less now. I told myself I was just naturally an overdramatic child. I still wake in the middle of the night with heart palpitations, as if just waking up is reason enough to panic. I don't think I slept most of my childhood, I was constantly profoundly exhausted. I often feel I am still trying to make up for that lost sleep. I would lie awake surrounded by my stuffed animals, I felt a deep sense of duty to protect them. I had a very intense phobia of dying in a house fire and would stay up all night vigilant, sometimes putting all my stuffed animals in my night gown and plotting elaborate escape plans for when the fire started. My mind projected my deep fear on other situations, or created new storylines, anything to keep me from the reality. I remember being in a supermarket looking at a bin of stuffed animals, I singled out the one towards the bottom I needed to "save." It looked like all the others but I desperately wanted that one because I knew no one realized it was alive and needed help. I left the store without it and I cried about that stuffed animal for months, that I had abandoned it. Even now telling this story brings up a deep sadness from the pit of my being, it makes me weak. Because of course, those stuffed animals were me. My heart kept breaking over and over because I could never save them or assure them the fire wouldn't come in the middle of the night. When I lay in my bed sobbing with exhausted fear, I would take Badina's paw and motion her stroking my head, saying, "it will be over soon." It's really over now. I have to stretch and challenge myself to discover all the ways I can let my body and mind know that more and more deeply.

Day 6: #30daystofreedom ::Get in the street and scream:: *trigger warning: child sexual abuse:: When I came across this picture growing up I would feel ill, angry & embarrassed. I thought it was because I looked ugly. I was 11 years old. This memory comes forward when I need a reminder to raise my voice, like today. I was being raped but I didn't know that's what was happening. I was deep in the strange experience of dissociation, disconnected cartoon imagery a child would imagine played on a reel. I wasn't on this planet. But suddenly something broke through. In my mind I saw a balloon inflating more and more until it burst. I think the balloon was a symbol for my pain, I suddenly thought I would explode. Pain tore through my body like a blaze of fire. It felt like it took super human strength to break through and move but somehow I got away and ran outside. All I could think was "get in the street & scream". I felt air on my skin, I was exposed. It was those white denim shorts in the picture I had been wearing but they were gone. As soon as I hit the air my momentum slowed. I suddenly didn't know what I was doing. I got to the curb and started blaming myself for always acting so crazy & embarrassing. I wanted to get in the street & scream but I couldn't move, my voice was strangled. Instead I laid next to a parked car, my head resting on the curb. My body felt like it was shutting down, therapists have explained to me my nervous system was going through powerful protective mechanisms post-trauma. My mind was blank I stared at the reflections on a silver bumper, running my finger on an exposed stone in the pavement. It felt like I laid there an eternity, then I was escorted back inside barely in my body. I heard someone express concern, "she's not well" with a gesture to the head, was the response. I probably pushed that experience far away by the next morning. This event still wakes me at night, it's so vivid. I believe it was a point at which my dissociation began to get even more powerful to make sure I didn't feel those feelings again. This post is me finally screaming in the street. I can not express how grateful I am that I can speak & be seen.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 5: #30daystofreedom ::The Hope::
It was a small golden kernel within me. I'm not sure how it go

Day 5: #30daystofreedom ::The Hope:: It was a small golden kernel within me. I'm not sure how it got there, it wasn't learned behavior. I believe it was ancient wisdom reflected back to me by the trees & flowers, the smell of the breeze after a rain. I understood deeply that nature was the benevolent force that cradled me in my tortuous existence. Nature is neutral, never lies, it doesn't know how. It is our perfect truth to gaze at. Amidst my fractured existence the hope was the one constant. The deep irrefutable knowing that I was going to someday be free. Hopelessness would wash over me, that golden kernel might fall out of my grasp in the tumultuousness of violence & the paralysis of repressed emotions that were packed in my body like thick mud. But when the tide went out that kernel of hope always returned to my fingers. I could see its golden color & peace. I saw it in the face of a dandelion, in goldenrod, even in my favorite yellow bathing suit with fringe. I found it when I needed it, it never failed me. When I thought there was no way out, when I was asleep at the wheel in my dissociation, the hope was always driving. Perhaps it was my soul. I saw myself on a sunny grassy path shielded from flames all around, they burned on & I was untouched, my path through fire. In order to start healing I had to find that little girl. I tried so hard to forget her that she had made herself very small and hidden, I looked for a year, I began searching during my pregnancy and quickened with the birth of my son- another 2 years from finding her broken exhausted body to breathing her new life. Now for the first time, I see her. A total fucking badass warrior, I had seriously misunderstood who she was. Anyone healing from almost anything understands the importance of finding and loving your inner child. It can sound like some annoying new-agey speak but god damn if it isn't the key to healing trauma & learning self love. My inner child is admittedly dizzy from walking out of her 35 year prison sentence, her eyes hurt from the light. She isn't sure it's really over, that she's not going to be hurt again. But that hope, it got her this far, now she knows she can trust it.

I maintain that unfortunately this is inaccurate. As her brother, my experiences of a lifetime with her tell me otherwise - see the first few days of this thread for debate on the topic if you'd wish. I do not know if it's 'lies' or something she truly believes incorrectly - a false reality of sorts. I'm not accusing or aggressively engaging anyone, just saying there is another side to this story - one that is not so clear as what has been presented here. Not looking for a fight or debate - just shedding a little light, a little hint that this may not be what it seems.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 4: #30daystofreedom ::dissociation is a life saving superpower-p2:: *trigger warning: child sex

Day 4: #30daystofreedom ::dissociation is a life saving superpower-p2:: *trigger warning: child sexual abuse* some days I remember being so dissociated I couldn't feel my body in space. I couldn't make out proper direction, I couldn't think clearly or hold on to memory. I couldn't piece together what was happening to me but I felt all the extreme feelings of fear and despair, feelings too powerful for a small child to manage. My body numbed my physical pain, sometimes I thought I was only a floating head, limbs strewn around the room. It was only through the sheer force of will, my ceaseless drive to create a new life for myself, that I muscled through that disconnection to be social. As I got older my coping mechanisms took new forms. But no matter how normal I was able to appear I never stopped being a fractured child cut off from myself and life. Even now when I speak about my experiences I feel my consciousness take a step back trying to protect me again. I spent a long time angry and confused about this, I always knew something was very wrong, I couldn't think clearly, my fogginess frustrated me- compounded by people calling me spacey, ditzy, and forgetful. Now I have a deep respect for my dissociation. It is a profound mechanism that saved my life. It protected me from pain but most importantly, it didn't allow me to know how profoundly trapped and alone I was. No child can survive that heartbreak and terror. Abused children can look normal, they smile and play, that's the point of dissociation: it's so the child can grow and have what healthy experiences they can, learn skills, access resources, so they might be able to free themselves in the future. Often the most severely abused children are the highest functioning because they are forced to build such a thick wall between themselves and their reality. When survivors ARE able to speak they often hear they are confused/crazy/lying, leading to re-traumatization, and more dissociation. The thing scarier then rape is the idea that the world is such a hostile place that no one will help you. It is not. Abuse just makes you believe it is. I no longer feel alone, I'm so grateful.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 3: #30daystofreedom ::dissociation is a life saving superpower-p1:: *trigger warning: child sex

Day 3: #30daystofreedom ::dissociation is a life saving superpower-p1:: *trigger warning: child sexual abuse* Abused children can appear mostly normal & functioning. I never remembered much of my childhood so I assumed it was normal & happy as anyone wants to believe their childhood was. I was told over & over what a happy & loved child I was. I really wanted to believe it. Yet extreme feelings of fear & sadness wracked my body for as long as I can remember. As children always do, I blamed myself for my discomfort. Dissociation is a detached state of mind & body as a reaction to trauma. Repressed memories & dissociation are more a disorganization of experience then forgetting. The body & mind hold all the physical pain & terrifying emotions but pad the consciousness from it so the child can function best they can. With every assault my protective reactions became more and more powerful. The moments that haunt me most are the first seconds from the first rape, because I hadn't yet learned to dissociate. It was an eclipse on my entire being, a bottomless darkness no child should know. I instantly knew the moments after weren't worth living, so I left my body. Again & again. These events feel very strange and removed from normal reality. Sometimes I had out of body experiences, looking down at myself, but I didn't think it was me. If I have a sense it was MY body being brutalized I convinced myself I was dreaming. There was a time I left my body so completely I thought I saw myself floating above, in the white out of my dissociation my child's mind told me I was an angel, that it finally killed me. Sometimes my child's mind believed I was being assaulted by some alien being. The fact that none of this made sense added to my embarrassment, shame, and silence. So I was set adrift in my ocean of confusion and fear. I was constantly told I made things up or didn't make sense when I asked for help, so it was very easy for me to believe I was crazy. As an adult it has been such a relief to finally learn from many professionals who study childhood trauma, that these coping mechanisms are normal & actually healthy reactions to extreme abuse.

Day 2: #30daystofreedom *trigger warning: child sexual abuse* Amazingly, today is my 36th Birthday. I fought hard to be here. I had to run before I learned to walk. I was 5 years old the first time I was raped. I am 5 in this photo. I was raped countless times after that and for many years. My first memory of molestation is at 3 years old, but my body and soul know it started when I was born. I have been completely, utterly, traumatized for 35 years. I just never knew life to feel any other way so I had no idea. When I started to wake up to my trauma it was as if I suddenly realized I had been trying to carry on as normal, never realizing I had been missing my arm my entire life. No wonder I was having such a hard time, no wonder I was in so much pain. Those who knew what was happening to me vacillated between denying it, acting like it was normal or not a big deal, and blaming me. I had absolutely no way to get help or understand I needed it. I was completely trapped in my trauma, a prison cell no one could see. The core of my being was bound and gagged, fractured and frozen in all those instances of abuse. My story is shattering, yet I'm still whole. I've felt so alone in it, yet I know deeply that I am not alone. Child sexual abuse is prevalent, we just never hear about it because our abusers keep us shrouded in silence and shame, frozen in fear. Our coping mechanisms keep us confused and disconnected. My childhood was a terrifying maze of violence and dissociation with no unifying time line or understanding of who I was or if I existed. I know this sounds shocking, it was so shocking to me my brain wouldn't allow me to understand it on a continuum. I only began to understand in recent years; taking on the truth, integrating it, and accepting it felt like it would break me in two. Healing is a free fall that slowly transforms into flight. I am ready to fly. I was told it snowed when I was born, as it was this morning. This feels like a full circle, a completion to the first phase of my life; it was so fucking hard. Trying not to read comments until the end, to those who speak with love, your witness and support mean the world.

apaththroughfire's Media: Day 1: I am committing to post everyday this month about how child sexual abuse has effected my lif

Day 1: I am committing to post everyday this month about how child sexual abuse has effected my life, how I am facing my abuse and healing, how lethal misconceptions about child sexual abuse are, and how our society's taboo and shame on the topic protects rapists and traps children in horrific and violent situations. In the name of all the children who can not speak I am unshackling my voice. In celebration of the possibility of healing and new life I am becoming visible. My goal is to stand firmly in my truth because I would not have truly lived in this lifetime if I don't speak. Join me if you feel called to read, I am grateful for your listening, but I am writing for no one but myself, I am writing to free my voice. I'll try not to read/reply to comments until after the 30 days so I stay the course writing only from my heart. I am writing to access the deeper freedom I need to live. I know if I find the courage now to speak publicly, loudly and clearly about what I have been through, my entire life will be changed forever. Because from this moment on I will be existing in a universe where my story is freely spoken and heard, where I am more powerful than adversity, strong enough to keep speaking, to keep rising up, to keep moving forward, to advocate fiercely for myself. Everything changes for me in this instant: I become larger then my abuse, larger then my abusers and the mental prison they built around me, the one I grew up inside- and larger than words from anyone who can't handle my story or questions the hell I have endured. Only recently have I come to understand how vast the world is beyond the limits my abuse forced on me, and that it is my absolute right to transcend the shame silenced me, because that shame that was never mine. On the other side of fear and shame is endless possibility, in that possibility is where I plan to exist: free and fearless. So here I begin: 30 days to freedom. This is another leap, a trust fall in a series of many. Now I know I always land more liberated and more alive.
