Breaking the Silence

To stop these awful things from happening, first, we need to talk about it. We need to stop shaming victims, and stop telling them to be silenced.

When victims of sexual abuse speak up, they need to be able to know where to go to start the process of healing. They need a list of advocates, lawyers, anyone who will help them heal from the inside out. They need to know they are not alone and the healing process is going to long-term. Nothing is ever cured on short-term bases.

Everything Happens For A Reason?

Surely everyone has heard “Everything Happens For a Reason”, do you believe that!? I do! I believe that we are put where we are for one reason or another. We may not know “right” now but eventually we might understand the things we go through, it might lead us onto the path we are taking now.
I, for one, have been through a lot. If it wasn’t for my step-dad walking out of my life I wouldn’t be where I am today. I would not have the thoughts that I have today which is: “We are never granted tomorrow. Men can come and go out of your life, the love you had might fade away, even if they loved you for decades, or minutes. Everyone’s mind changes, and every time the mind changes, so does your reason.

If you go through enough heartbreak in your life, you then build a wall around you, and things just don’t surprise you. If someone else who hasn’t been through enough heartbreak they would not know how to act or think about the situation. Other words if you don’t go through the game, how are you going to play the game without the rules? If you don’t know the rules, you don’t know the game.

Another thing, if I wasn’t raped, I would not think about the “what ifs” I would not have the visions I do today, I would not know where to go or who to talk to about the situation if I wasn’t there, if I didn’t go through it. Now since I learned from what happened, and I know the reason behind it and that is “Everything Happens For a Reason” and I know I can make it through anything.
I can now know who I am, where I stand. I, also, know that if something was to happen to my daughter, I would know what to do. I would know to be there for her, to give her tighter hugs, to give her the understanding that I will be by her side no matter how tough it may be or just how proud I am of her.

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe

Everything does happen for a reason, and you cannot take life for granted. You may not know why you are on the path you are on now, but you will eventually learn something from your past.
Once you pass through obstacles in your life you now have a new perspective on your potential, strength, heart, and inner-self.

So, do you think “Everything Happens For a Reason”?
