I survived…

It wasn’t an everyday event. It’s hard to comprehend. it’s ok to not feel like yourself. To feel different, disconnected and a drift.

I survived the event, but I don’t feel like I survived.

I survived but I feel like I’m sinking.

I survived but I don’t know how to get through it.

Why did I survive when I’m only existing?

I survived but what for?

I survived but I’m trapped in anxiety, in terror, in shock.

I survived but I don’t know how to recover.

I survived but I don’t feel like a survivor.

My strength has subsided, my desire is gone.

Surrender and trust.

I’m glad you survived.

I’ve never heard those words before. So simple, yet so beautiful and powerful.

I did survive.

  1. What can I say! You have bared your soul so I hope it was therapeutic.
    So very well put. It needs publicity!
    I’m sure it will resonate with people
