Submissions from projectunbreakablesubmissions@gmail.com.

One of these submissions is mine. Seeing it was unreal, unnerving, empowering, and incredible.

Sharing my story means it happened which can be a horrible reality to accept but more than that it means other women are not alone and I always want to give that hope to them.

You are not alone!! You can overcome and grow and move on!!

There is always hope.

And that? THAT is incredible, profound, empowering.

That is life.

Not only women.  The one with the scruffy handwriting on the bottom left is mine, I feel the same way about how it felt making the submission.  But the bottom line is that sexual abuse and rape happens to men as well.  There is always hope for all people who have terrible things happen to them in life.

We just have to find it.
