"Do not tell everyone your story. You will only end up feeling more rejected. People cannot give you what you long for in your heart. The more you expect from people’s response to your experience of abandonment, the more you will feel exposed to ridicule."
Henri J. M. Nouwen (via rachel-runninghome)
"When we survive sexual assault, we are the gift. When we survive, when we go on to love, to work, to speak out, to have fun, to laugh, to dance, to cry, to live, when we do that, we defeat our attackers. For a moment, they strip us of our choices. As we heal, we take our choices back. We are the gift to ourselves, our families, our communities, and our nation when we survive."

Okay getting a grip. Identified some things I want to do, went swimming (diving lesson #2!), did the countries test — and now we are going out for lunch* and then walking & talking. It’s okay, it’s okay.
* To a joke. Steak ‘n’ Shake which apparently sells…steaks and shakes. But when I first came to Indiana, I was sure it was a place for steak and…dancing.
