Someone suggested to me that when “Survivors lose their way… they control that journey”
Let’s be clear about one thing:
As a survivor, I’m doing the best I can to keep moving forward. Between the known triggers, the unknown triggers, the memories, the surpressed memories, the nightmares, the daymares etc …I’m truly doing the best I can…..But, if you can’t see that, then please be kind enough to just not say anything…
I’m further than I was in healing. Not as far as I would like to be… but I’m not where I was. Believe me, I have miles of work ahead of me, and I know it.
I handle what I can and more often what I can’t and believe me that list is way longer than anyone knows.
The list is exhausting really.
That which I can control, I do, with such precision you don’t even realize the enormous effort made.
The effort to blend in, is work in itself.
So when my battery dies, have the decency to either offer a jump, or sit quietly on the sidelines.
I’m doing the very best I can to keep alive, but if you can’t see that, then please be kind enough to just not say anything…
