You can tell a lot from a person by the type of music they listen to. Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, media player, etc. and write down the first 20 songs and then pass this on to 10 people. One rule: no skipping

Disclaimer: The But! series is being done to address common self victim blaming. This series is not intended to be used to educate non-survivors.

But it wasn’t that bad….
But other people had it worse….
But it was only…
It was not only. It was trauma. Stand alone- trauma. It doesn’t need a qualifier, and even if it did- the qualifier would not be one of minimization.
Sexual trauma and abuse are sexual trauma and abuse. There is no hierarchy, they do not exist in comparison to one another. Each subset, each descriptive term- has it’s place, but only to help foster understanding and community. They are not meant to be used as ‘but it was only _____’.
What happened to you, was trauma. What happened to you was terrible. What happened to you was not okay.
And you are allowed to heal from it. You are allowed to hurt and be angry. You are allowed to need time and space.
Every survivor heals differently.
Most survivors struggle with different things but almost all of us struggle with this invalidation. We do a disservice to ourselves and one another when we say ‘my trauma isn’t as bad as theirs’.
Your trauma is valid.
Whether it only happened once or happened for years.
Whether it was rape or abuse or sexual assault.
Whether you realized it at the time, or recovered the memory years later.
No matter who your aggressor was or what you were wearing/doing at the time.
Your trauma is valid.
and so are you.
Take care of yourself, okay?
