The battles we often fight are for the message in front of us to be silenced because they mirror too much of our own pain. I believe many who discredit #christineblaseyford
are terrified of her truth. It threatens their ability to keep a tight reign on the lives they’ve built that help them feel secure. . . I was one of them. I was deeply engrained in my Christianity. I was hopeful that one day I would feel whole. I used every mask possible to hide the deep uncertainty I had as a human being carrying years of trauma inside of my body. It took me 20+ years of therapy to finally take my life back, address years of sexual abuse and also come out as gay. . . I share this because I know the opposing denial. I know what it feels like to feel deeply threatened by someone else’s truth. Even when, on some level you know they’re honest, you are terrified to agree, and believe you will have the support to sustain your own life. . . Through the crashing and burning of many cycles, I’m grateful to be on the side of a ton of warriors for justice, humanity, equality. . . As we proceed I hope that this movement continues to be a megaphone for the broken hearts of so many that are terrified to express their own truths. I hope today, no one points the aimless blame at Dr Ford without questioning what it is about her bravery, beauty, and femininity that scares them. . . Carry on, you amazing women. You’ve converted this heart from being tangled in pain to set ablaze for truth and justice. 🔥🔥🔥 #ibelieveher
because I can spot a warrior a mile away.
