What is your trajectory?

“You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”

“My life is mine to create and enjoy”

One of the most moving quotes from a brave  and resilient young woman in the book Humans of New York Stories, which originates from the beautiful website  Humans of New York :

“I was sexually abused between the ages of eight and twelve. But honestly, I don’t even like to talk about it anymore, because I’ve finally gotten to the point where it no longer defines me. For a long time I saw myself as a victim, but I’ve moved past that. I’m in a place now where I realize that my life is mine to create and enjoy, and that my future will be the result of the decisions that I make.”

Taking back control and having aspirations for ones future  are essential in overcoming trauma. Most refugee children have experienced neglect, sexual exploitation, emotional abuse and violence. Sexual and emotional abuse and corporal punishment are taboos in our society. Let us support children by helping them get out of their isolation and build their future.
