So excited and feeling overwhelmed with privilege at the opportunity to speak in a few minutes about the role of soul care in mental health and racial trauma. My vocation is to love wounded people & encourage them towards spiritual health. What an honor, to serve image bearers. https://t.co/WDPcUWBZOO

“The natural response is, “We got out of there alive! Don’t look back!” BUT, what we went through, & tragically our 3 children, I WOULD NEVER WISH upon anyone to experience, which is why I support Kyle in his decision to share what he did in his article..” https://t.co/h2WUxTPvsF

Do you or somebody you know think that #AbolishThePolice is unrealistic? It might be because you haven’t taken the time to understand what it means, the reasons for it, and why it actually makes a lot of sense. [Thread]

Brilliant thread @TravelingNun. Thankful for you. https://t.co/BqxqJ1cJHN

Wow. As someone who spent several years of my life as part of gang culture, this is a powerful photo for those who understand what’s going on in it. #BlackLivesMatter https://t.co/hxZMqNn6dn

The psychological exhaustion & anxiety of, “Could this be the it?! Could this be the moment where the world will finally come to believe black people’s lives matter? My life? My children’s life?... or is this just another moment of charged emotions that’ll soon pass?”

People with nothing to fear are not angry or afraid when you tell your story. The only people enraged by you telling your story, if you are walking in truth, are people who benefit from having that story never told.

Power is not a weapon to be wielded, but a tool of service. It is given not to be clenched, but to be given away. It is to be used to empower others & uplift the marginalized or oppressed. Power without love’s oversight becomes the world’s worst & most violent terror.

5. So often, victims of abuse, due to trauma, can feel like a piece of their humanity has been stolen b/c their emotions & mental state is broken. However, the brokenness is actually a sign of their humanity b/c trauma breaks normal/healthy people. Lack of brokenness is concern.

4. Abuse is a profound injustice, and the human soul naturally cries out for justice and against injustice. A survivor’s longing and zeal for justice is righteous & holy, and is actually evidence of emotional stability even if it often feels to them like the opposite.

3. It’s common for survivors to struggle w/ a haunting feeling of “danger” & even the idea of exposing abuser can be triggering. Trauma care must prioritize the well being of the individual & provide reassurance of safety. Let earnestness for justice come naturally over time.

2. This step cannot be rushed w/o risking profound trauma recovery setbacks & it’s crucial that survivors themselves are given the power to set their pace and are not rushed to this stage. It can takes years upon years for a survivor to get to this place, and that’s fully okay.

Quoted @KyleJamesHoward

What is Trauma? It is haunting pain. Trauma is the result of a “painful” experience that is so profound & monumental that it follows (haunts) an individual throughout their life; constantly terrorizing them emotionally, spiritually, & psychologically. https://t.co/mkOkTsr40R

1. Trauma in indeed “haunting pain” & when it comes to abuse, part of trauma includes being haunted by the secrecy of your abuse. Often, the final piece of healing for abuse victims includes exorcising the ghost of secrecy & finally revealing what happened to them and who did it. https://t.co/Lc9VIxS1LR
