“Happy Birthday Survivors!
It has been a privilege; to be part of the; Survivors blog. It is comforting to be with a group of people who understand and care. I also think this blog is a good resource for family and friends of survivors of trauma and abuse because it helps with understanding and information. one of ‘the’ most difficult things for many survivors, is to learn to decentralize from self; This is one of the keys to recovery…but can be tricky if you are not feeling well…but this blog does help with that issue by listening to other survivors.”
From Army of Angels Co-Founder
“I have loved being part of Survivors for the last 5 years, and never dreamed it would mean as much to me as it does! Survivors feels like a community. Everyone has something unique and different to contribute to the group, and each is a survivor! Being survivors is the common thread- choosing to move forward through the storm, and then reaching back to help others.
Through community blogging, I feel I have grown as a person. I started blogging initially, when I was regrouping through therapy at our domestic violence center, after escaping years of psychological beating. Journaling was recommended, and I thought I would try using a blog for the purpose of releasing my thoughts. I never thought anyone would read my blog or care. What I found was that there are people everywhere, in some sort of battle, just looking for someone to bounce thoughts around with…to feel that we are not alone…
When I first met Melinda through blogging, I was overwhelmed with her care and empathy. Never underestimate the value of kind and supportive words to others…and always pay it forward!”❤️
From Robert Goldstein

From Hyperion Co-Founder
“Sharing creative arts with fellow survivors showed me that I was okay and it was a good thing to explore the sources of trauma because each visit made the memories less painful and less important to the path my life had taken. I was free, not oblivious, just free.”
