When I originally launched Arming Sisters back in 2013, I incorporated a blog called Stories of Strength. I’m not sure why I didn’t bring it over to ASRW, but it’s time to do so now.
Why Stories of Strength? Because stories of recovery post sexual assault are extremely hard to find in the media. You can find any other recovery stories quite readily - from substance abuse to car wreck survivors - but search for stories of healing post sexual assault and you’ll be hard pressed to find any.
This won’t only be recovery stories though - this will also host the raw stories we as humans need to get out. The dark, ugly, and stomach churning times we carry with us slowly begin to slip away, one layer at a time as you heal. One of the greatest ways to begin healing? Telling your story.
So let’s bring inspiration to others together...take a few healing steps together...and remind each other we are not alone.
