I believe... people are inherently good and want to do right by other people too.
I believe... sometimes people face such overwhelming situations that they give into powerlessness completely. This can come from a huge variety of situations and experiences.
I believe... there's never a right time to get started other than Right Now. Right Now is an organization with similar values to survivors2thrivers. Right Now is the only time anything can happen anyway.
I believe... the first step in moving forward with anything is recognizing, accepting, and grieving change.
I believe... change can be scary. Just look at the polarization in American politics today. survivors2thrivers.org is not a political site. The principles and values of survivors2thrivers are human. This link is only an example.
I believe... we share a fundamentally human connection.
I believe... we're all in this together.
I believe... we don't know how to talk about pain. I'm not talking about regular pain, as in, "this" hurts. I'm talking about deep, soul-shaking, traumatic pain.
I believe... this can help war vets, victims of domestic violence, and victims of all sorts of traumatic, soul-shaking experiences.
I believe... there is so much to say about this topic that I couldn't possibly say it all in one post, yet I have to start somewhere if I want this to go anywhere.
