The Survivors Legacy
A look Inside The Pain
We as people especially those that have been through some thing. How do I put it? We don’t want anyone’s pity.let’s be real here you can clearly see it on someone’s face once they know your story. Our thoughts go to the judgment , negative self talk, and just reliving it again. theirs also my fellow inspiration loves that take that pain and turn it into something positive.It’s a breath of fresh air. to finally be in a place where you have the strength for the first time ever to say hi my name is blank and I survived blank . It’s incredibly empowering moment.
Inspiring Others To Share
For so long you get in this place in your own head that your the only one.funny the little ways we ourselves take a nice chunk of confidence and Toss it to the wolves . Having a way to connect with others. that might not see the possibility of overcoming maybe something similar or the same thing.heck we very often never hear or know how much it meant to someone till they say something. In truth it help us just as much as others.
Helping Others Also Helps Ourselves
Now while share is great for everyone. Let it be known that in my head . There is always this one person out there just like I was. Going through the same feelings and emotions.my whole intent is that my blogs or poems reach that one person. That’s suffering in silence and maybe at the last thread .when we hear others say hey that really resonated with me and thank you .Even showing up at a meeting and standing up and saying your piece. Theirs a connection that is formed at times.That’s worth a million dollars. That’s why some of us do it. It’s all about love.
Silence is what kills us slowly
Yes, the drama of that one title only gets ya right in the heart.the truth of it is just that. So many of us sit in silence.we even lose so much hope that we just don’t get the help we need. I’ll take this time to please reach out for help.you are very much loved and the world would be poorer for it. Without you here to share it with us all.your not alone as you think you are . We are here for you.
Mantra’s and just keep swimming
Yes I did take that line from dory. The just keep swimming and we do recover mantra. We all use something to pull us out of our dark cloud. The lighthouse that shines hope in our hearts .that keeps us moving forward from one second to the next minute. Last blog I share a mantra I can, I will . That is mine and pretty sure others use it as well to. Work your program , share your story , write your poems of inspiration. That’s your gift to this world . Share it in all it’s beauty. Not only the great parts but also the troubling parts . Carry on that message of hope and recovery with others. Be proud of all that you have survived.
The Survivors Legacy
The survivors legacy is one of silence
We never speak about our pain or that depression that comes in waves
So deep in that sadness that it drives us to madness
So often we forget to grant ourselves the same saving grace that we often give to others
Walking around with unseen open wounds
Looking up at the night wondering if anyone truly sees our pain
With a mask of serenity firmly in place
Down on bending knee to the lord we pray
That this the survivors legacy of saving grace .
Last but not least
Does the good outweigh the bad ?
That question alone gets the wheels of motion
Turning in my head
Our perception may all be different as we are not all the same
But there is one thing that we can’t change
Our humanity through unity
Giving a voice to the voiceless
Helping others stand when it’s easy to sit
Going against the grain Helps other to finally open there eyes
We often lose our way but take that time to make peace with yourself
As I look to my left and my right
Seeing an army of support and banded together with a single purpose
Proof to the mass that our past doesn’t define our future
We stand together so that you all can see that we do recover .
