"Dear little me,
Remember you were not born a survivor. Attachment wounds and sexual trauma come from being in relationship with other humans. Hurt people have hurt you and taken things from you but you MUST remember the pain did not originate from you, no matter how many times you are gas lit and shamed for your brilliant and valid rage. It is this world and all it’s toxic masculinity that has to soften into the love that it is so afraid to feel and take accountability and responsibility for the pain and grief that you and all the survivors around you have faced. You will find the rest of us sibling survivors scattered across the night sky—our little lights guiding you when there is only darkness inside you. This darkness is an illusion. Your heart is bright enough to gravitate its own solar system. No one tells you how brave it is to allow yourself to feel through every inch of your suffering, but today—I will. You are not defined by the assaults and violence that happened to you. You are not defined by the betrayals you’ve experienced. The Earth was not defined by the asteroid that struck it but rather by the 65 million years of life that came after. You’re a brave molecule in that cosmos. Our healing is slow but revolutionary. You will rise from your own ashes. Your tears will flood the patriarchy and channel new rivers. You will open your new eyes for the first time and witness the stars, and their light will discover home upon your skin.
Dear survivor, the galaxy is yours." #survivorloveletter ❤️💧🦋 @jessxsnow
