This blog was started as a forum to talk about tough stuff that affects most people’s lives. While this can be tough stuff to read and talk about these are discussions that need to be happening in our communities.
Some of the material we post on this blog may be triggering.
Whatever feelings that come up while reading any blog (anger, fear, joy) they are not feelings you need to deal with alone.
There are infinite ways to cope with difficult feelings or to take care of ourselves!
One idea could be to call SACHA’s twenty-four hour support line to chat – 905.525.4162. Folks of any gender who are survivors, supporting survivors or wanting to talk about challenging topics like sexual violence and other forms of abuse are welcome to call anytime.
What are some things that you do to take care of yourself?
