  • Trust is such a huge word..
how true this is
.

We trusted
yet we were hurt
We trusted 
yet we were punished
We trusted
yet we suffered
We trusted
yet we were tormented
We trusted
yet we were wronged
.

We trusted 
and we are healing
We trusted 
and we are released
We trusted
and we are comforted
We trusted 
and we are supported
We trusted 
and we are honored
.

As survivors of abuse there is so much distrust in our lives, that at times, it is hard to know who or what to trust..
We learn to trust ourselves as we travel through our journey, 
we know our truth, we know our heart
We know what is right for us..
Trust is our hope
.

Wishing you well wherever you are on your healing journey

  • Survivors of CSA sift through many layers to find our true self, our heart.
The glazed over layer that makes us appear put together, in control.
We hide behind the veil of fear.
The dense fog of our memories can cloud our truth.
.

As we begin or continue on our road to recovery, we can peel off elements that are not useful to us.
We can also add depth to the layers of importance.
Your heart is shrouded in loving comfort.
.

Find your heart, embrace its strength, your strength.
Allow your heart to be seen, to push through the layers of guilt, shame, hopelessness, unworthiness, fear, and all things that make you small.
.

Your heart, your truth, is bigger than you know.

Did you find the heart within the layers of the flower?

  • It is tough getting over rape. Just know that you are so much stronger than you think. You will overcome it. You will get out of it stronger and wiser than ever before. You will find a reason why it happened. You will find a way to make the best out of it. You will forgive them. It will never be ok that it happened. It is unfair. It is rough. It is the most.. Well I am bad with mean words, so I call it bad. Maybe it is the worst thing that can happen to anyone. Maybe there are worse scenarios. But believe me. You will overcome the current moment. You will find your peace. You will heal your broken parts. You will find the positive within every bad situation.
The lies always some good thing in a bad thing. Always. 
Most importantly: You will find true love again.

Just know: It is not your fault. You deserve a beautiful life. You deserve to be loved. You deserve the best.

  • When I was 13 (it was during a play that we all had to see as a class), I was sitting kinda towards the back and it was dark (cause it was a play), and my best friend at the time grabbed my butt. I told him to stop and moved away, he didn’t listen and whispered in my ear “what are you gonna do about it?” I tried to tell a couple friends, one of which witnessed it but she said “well you were kinda all over him” referring to when I hugged him. Another said “that’s just what he does.”
...I should mention he didn’t stop until I got up and moved away from him. #submissions #notyourfault #thecatcallcollective

  • Believe..
.

We are as strong as we believe we are
It's the acknowledgement of that belief that seems to be forgotten
We are full of power and strength, courage and fortitude..
but at times it may feel as though we are powerless
We don't listen to the voice of reason, rather we hear the voice of doubt
Listen to the whisper within..
Hear its encouragement
Feel its potential
Smell its influence
See the results
Taste the victory
.

We are strong and tenacious, how could we not be
Acknowledge the strength within you and wear it proudly
.

Wishing you well wherever you are on your healing journey

  • I shared this live video 6 months ago (July 27, 2019). Some of you have probably seen it and most others have not, I was very hesitant to share it again because my ego was scared of the judging eyes but I said fck that, those judging eyes are not my responsibility. They’re just a mere reflection of the unhealed parts of oneself. My heart is in the right place and this video is for those who may really need to see it.

Since my coming out, I’ve been bullied and shamed for speaking my truth. I understand that this may be my karma so I fully accepted it, but since then, have healed and let it go. Someone who I truly admire, @thejeanniemai once said, “OWN you, before they do.” MMmm, yes, speak it girl! Because I’ve owned it, no one has power over me anymore. I’m not proud of my past but I’m damn proud of my ME now! I’m not the same girl I used to be because I learned how to love ALL parts of me! And now, I get to move on and begin again, and so can YOU! Holler at cha girl if you resonate and don’t be shy to send me a DM if you need support with any of this! We’ve all been through this in one form or another and I want to let you know that you are not alone. I love you!!! 💚 #tracytreks #ownyou

  • Hey I'd like to submit an experience that I remembered today. It was when I was 16 or 17 that I went to pride parade and a (probably much older) guy started to dance with me, which was fine because I like to dance and I didn't interpret it as anything sexual. But then he started touching me between my legs without my consent and I remember being really confused and shocked by this experience. Since then I've been at pride almost every year and I've been photographed kissing another person without giving my permission and seen men take pictures and videos of women/femmes/feminine presenting folks without their consent. It makes me feel as if there is so safe space for me because pride is being sold out to big companies who don’t care about the problems going on during this big spectacle. Why can't queer teenage me even enjoy a safe pride parade?
I sometimes feel like I'm the only person struggling with constant harassment because many of my friends don't seem to be sexually harassed as often as me, and even though I feel happy for them (of course), I sometimes feel like I'm just doing something wrong, even if I know thats not the case and I just seem to be unlucky to run into shitty men that often. #submissions #notyourfault #pride #prideparade #sexualharassment #leavemealone #thecatcallcollective
