"You must be the change that you want to see in this world"
Last Week’s ANNOUNCEMENTS
The group’s very first discussion was to identify our unique Support System. Click Here to Join our Dynamic Support Group: Recharge & Support Group for Sexual Abuse Survivors.
You do not need to claim sexual abuse advocacy to be apart of our support group, but we All need Support as a Community to bridge community gaps & raise Awareness-Love & Let Love!

As time went on, I unconsciously cut ties with the people who were detrimental to me. It was easy, in some respects due to the physical distance away from them, & for a while I felt like a coward because I didn’t confront the issues directly. It felt like I was running away from my problems. But I was wrong.
Without being aware of my actions, I was practicing self-advocacy by removing myself out of the reach of the people & places that triggered me.

Are there people who you know that aren’t good for you in your life? Is there anyone who doesn’t support you in becoming the best version of yourself? Find those who honor your dreams.
This can be a challenge to think about… I once told a family member that one of my desires in life was to study journalism & the harsh feedback that I received in return had paused my dream for writing several years. I came from a background of emotional & verbal abuse and I learned to advocate for myself painfully slow, but I discovered that each step I took made me feel more free!!!

You don’t have to cut these ties completely out of your life. I don’t encourage the cross-country retreat that I practiced, though it worked for me. A more effective way is to educate yourself on techniques & strategies to deal with those people. Often, as in my example, the bullies can be in your own family. Situations to that magnitude should be dealt with professionally, of course, but a daily practice of self-advocacy will restore your will.
Now the hard Question: Who in your life does not Support you? How can you use Declaratory Language to make that relationship better? Take your time paying special attention to your feelings during this reflection.
