Michael J. Fox
I included this quote in "Unlock The Door-Beyond Sexual Abuse" because I feel like it could not be any more true.
Things happen to us and we cope as best as we can. Our coping strategies may or may not change over time.
It is our perception, of what happens to us, that determines how we cope - self harm vs self care.
When our dignity is attacked, we need to access all the resources possible to hold onto or to restore self love.
Healing is a journey, a shift in perception.
