Develop a SAFETY PLAN:
Sexual abuse like tree roots can be deep, snarled, hidden.
These roots support life-birds, animals, people.
Don’t end your wellbeing or life because of someone else’s actions.
When things get snarly, reach out to compassionate persons and trauma professionals.
Survivors of sexual abuse are not alone!
Survivors know the snarls and share hope with survivors.
Fun, love, laughter, joy can be part of life too.
