You are not alone.

 {YOU ARE NOT ALONE} I am strong. I am resilient. I try my best. I know the value of life. I am the perfect me. I never give up. I am empathetic. I am a warrior. I am ready to conquer. I am not broken. I take things one day at a time. I am independent. I am human. I AM A SURVIVOR. 🖤 

Consent.

image61

{Consent} Flirting is NOT consent. Alcohol is NOT consent. Sexting is NOT consent. Dating is NOT consent. Nudity is NOT consent. Silence is NOT consent. Saying NO is not consent. CONSENT is CONSENT. Someone {man or woman} consciously agreeing.. THAT IS CONSENT!! 🖤 

Changing the culture.

image62

 {Changing the Culture} Every 98 seconds abuse occurs- Every 8 minutes one is a child. ENOUGH. Men & Woman together need to end this. Needs to be a {Culture Change entirely}  A movement. Ending the abuse cycle. Standing up. Raising your voice. WE ARE NOT standing for this anymore.  🖤

Become.

{BECOME} {I am NOT what happened to me.. I am what I choose to BECOME!} 🖤  

Demons.

{DEMONS} {You wake up every morning to fight the same demons that left you so tired the night before, and that, my love, is bravery!} 🖤 

Appreciated.

image65

 {You have been doubted, hated, talked about, made fun of, hurt, lied to, lied on, broken and at your wits end. With that being said, I commend you for the fact that you are still standing. Your courage speaks volumes! I know your struggle and the pain you’ve endured. You are more than a conqueror. I am proud to say that your heart belongs to me. Nothing can keep you down and no one can steal your joy. All of your storms have ended up blessing the sky with rainbows. Don’t give up, continue to stand tall and love yourself first. You are APPRECIATED. Alexandra Elle Smith} 🖤

Set the world on fire.

[SET THE WORLD ON FIRE.} {You are not a victim to sharing your story. You are a survivor for setting the world on fire with your truth. You never know who needs your light, your worth & raging courage. Alex Elle} 🖤  

Talk about it.

image67

{TALK ABOUT IT} {Keeping sexual abuse a secret won’t make it stop. Sweeping it under the rug won’t keep us safe. WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT IT.} 🖤 

Be Patient.

image68

 {We are all damaged. We have all been hurt. We have all had to learn painful lessons. We are all recovering from some mistake, loss, betrayal, abuse, injustice or misfortune. All of life is a process of recovery that never ends. We each must find ways to accept and move through the pain and to pick ourselves back up. For each pang of grief, depression, doubt or despair there is an inverse toward renewal coming to you in time. Each tragedy is an announcement that some good will indeed come in time. Be patient with yourself.} 🖤
