Hey everyone. Hope y'all had a fantastic day, today I was working on a personal project & to think I actually shared it with the world let's just say is so scary. I was told about a year and couple of months ago to not tell anyone. To keep my mouth shut well today marks the day I don't sit back in silence anymore I never in a million years would think I could do this but I did & I just want to share something personal with y'all to let whoever else as been a rape victim you are not alone. It wasn't your fault. You are in control of your life still don't let what happened to you define you. There will be a story time soon on my channel but for now the link is in my bio as always let me know what y'all think #rapevictim#rapesurvivor#rapesupport#mystory#slampoetry#mytestimony#silenceisbroken#freedom
When the sirens call “It’s hard being a white male right now” is something I’ve heard recently. With all of the news stories of women and men coming forward and sharing their stories of sexual harassment, assault and abuse - and the naming by @time of Person of the Year to The Silence Breakers - some people are channeling their fear, anger, sadness, or feelings of guilt-by-association into what we (too) often do when we feel those emotions, joke.
After listening to @yoga_girl’s #MeToo podcast episode last week, and reading her #MeTooYoga blog post today, I’m aware of how often these things have happened under the guise of bodywork, massage, yoga adjustments, or similar work. And how often students and clients are prone to think that “If I were deeper into or more committed to my practice/ more comfortable in my body, etc. etc. I wouldn’t feel this way.” As Rachel said in her podcast episode, IF IT FELT WRONG, IT WAS WRONG. That includes making statements about this movement that deny it’s importance and relevance.
Let’s all end this year and move onward with open eyes, ears and arms, and with determination to address and process the difficult things - especially that which we’ve been denying.
