It is so hard and so hurtful to remember. But it is useful.

Remembering, recalling, and retelling give us power over the things that have held so much power over us.
We cannot grieve, release, or escape what we are not willing to look at. Take it out, see it for what it is…
Group is a safe place to do that. We go there together, keep one another safe and sane, help one another see clearly, name things honestly. We are freed from the grip of them.
That is a journey worth taking.
