Words matter – Rhymes with Religion

Thank you GRACE for posting this!
Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words ask survivors to help us understand their pain? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words actually encourage survivors to speak about their abuse and to warn us about those who abuse? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words actually facilitate healing of survivors in their timing, not ours? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words assure survivors that we believe them and that we give them the benefit of the doubt? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words are never used to degrade survivors into believing that one day they may become perpetrators? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words repeatedly reassure survivors that they are never ever responsible for being victimized? Wouldn’t it be amazing to live in a world where our words comfort even those survivors who have offended or hurt us?
