Survivor Quotes 76

“We, as survivors, get the right to define what happened to us. Even if it doesn’t fit the narrative other people want, even if others would find it easier if we changed our story so it would make better sense to them, even if others want to justify what our abusers did because “they didn’t know better” or “they were hurt, too.” Even if our experiences are “too much to be real” for some and “too little to count” for others.”
