The 4th of July is an American holiday, but we all should be celebrating it with fireworks, hot dogs, potato salad, apple pie and a few good stiff drinks, because the fourth of July is
Whatever stage of recovery you are in right now, I promise you that this is
a day worth celebrating!
To all survivors of abuse,
congratulations on your independence from oppression, servitude, torture, financial abuse, mental anguish, and having your beliefs and feelings ignored.
You are free to live the life you deserve
anyway you choose to live it.
No more will you be told what to wear, what and when to eat
What to spend your money on or when and how you will have sex
your opinion WILL matter and your boundaries WILL be respected
because you will make sure they are.
This is even more significant because look at these stats,
Good old USA is always at the top of the stats, by a long shot and then it is always the UK and Canada and Australia right behind. I know that it has to do with the size of the US and it’s population and that makes the UK coming in second really scary!!
Freedom is the same whether it has to do with a race, a country politics, work or in the privacy of our homes. No one deserves to be treated less than an equal, with equal rights, equal respect and equal power to voice their opinions and set their boundaries.
It is hard to soar like an eagle when you fly with seagulls. make sure you associate with people who allow you to soar like an eagle, people who inspire you to reach new heights and be all that you can be.
You are out of the cage now, sing! spread your wings and fly! and celebrate independence day!!
