Im new =)

- What independence did you lose after surviving abuse?
I lost the ability to be open with people. The freedom of emotion, of sexuality, the freedom of not wondering whos waiting outside my window at night.

- What pieces of independence have you already regained?
A strength I continue to not realize I have. When everything is gone, faith/hope/trust in those who should take care of me, I am left at night with that which I did not know I had. I have become a survivalist.

and this week's bonus question:
- What sort of independence are you working towards now?
relationship growth, not being afraid of being touched or loved. Its hard and im not doing very well at it

this is our emergency.

this song is my anthem, i thought id share it with you guys. the song is "this is our emergency" by pretty girls make graves. give it a listen, it always makes me feel like im a brand new person.

When you've finally throw up your hands
Poured your heart out, yet nothing stands
It seems our efforts are wasted
But yet it hasn't been in vain

Unfulfillment is killing you
Seems like no one shares the same view
We may have never met but
It might be you who pulls me through

Stand up so I can see you
Shout out so I can hear you
Reach out so I can touch you
This is our emergency
This is our emergency
This is our emergency

Baby you don't have to be
A picture in a magazine
Sometimes you're to blind to see
Anything objectively
Just keep on doing your thing right now

Listen here take it from me
We're gonna do it differently
They'll follow when you start the lead
Strength in numbers is our key
Keep on doing your thing you do now

Don't forget that when you doubt
That anyone will care about
A thing you do and when you're lost
Someone else is always found
A thousand voices, are you listening?

The tiny spare that you create
It can inspire and duplicate
And soon it spreads from state
To state from Williamsburg to Silverlake
A thousand voices, are you listening?
This is our emergency
This is our emergency

Stand up so I can see you
Shout out so I can hear you
Reach out so I can touch you
This is our emergency

Baby you don't have to be
A picture in a magazine
Sometimes you're to blind to see
Anything objectively
Just keep on doing your thing right now

Don't forget that when you doubt
That anyone will care about
A thing you do and when you're lost
Someone else is always found
A thousand voices, are you listening?
This is our emergency
This is our emergency
