Characteristics of Male Survivors

editorially it feels important to mention that i am on the transmasculine spectrum (FTM), although not specifically male-identified, tho DANG, that shit fits like a glove!

sometimes i want to know how much of my life has not been colonized by trauma. is there any place that is safely untouched?

then i think how messed up it is to assume that just because some part of my life has been touched by trauma it is somehow less, it is sullied, dirty, used-up, etc–i would never make those assumptions about someone else’s life in relation to their trauma history.

why do i do it to myself?

i am trying to learn how to be as compassionate with myself as i am with others.
