Saw this quote and it spoke to me. I have sometimes felt that through my recovery and healing that I have been draining my friends or care providers with my needs. This has reminded me that I am a gift. Every survivor gives something special to the world.
“Working with survivors of abuse offers professionals the opportunity to work with individuals who embody what it means to be courageous and resilient. It is an honour that also transforms the care provider… you will not look at the world the way you did before… it is a calling that comes with costs…”
