We are not broken

this group is actually pretty good at this, standing up strong as survivors but I want to take this one next step. I think you all know that being a victim is something we WERE, but if we stay in that mindset we could be victims forever. And I refuse to let that happen, every single one of us are worth more than that. So, I say we all stand up, state that we are NOT broken, and say five good things about ourselves. I'll start.

My name is Erin and I am not broken

I try my best everyday to break the cycle of abuse

I am a darn good friend

I am a darn good leader

I am fantastic at working with little kids

And I am a very creative person

This sounds helpful and its also hard for me to write things about myself but I will try:

I am Caity and I am not broken

I am creative and artsy

I am good at taking care of little kids

I work hard every day to fight for myself and the good memories not the bad

I am trying my best with the things I do

I am taking my life back
