my buddy pam wrote me a note yesterday with
a sentence in it that knocked me outta my
it was the wording of the sentence that just
bam. bam. bam. hit so loud and clear.
i wanted to put it out here....
she was writing me about the message we get
when we're molested. here's what she said:
"We hear "don't tell" as "don't tell who you are,
because the molester saw that and look what happened."
have you ever worded it to yourself that way???
i don't think i have.
i think i have worded it a thousand ways to myself,
and i think they've all meant the same thing....
but she nailed it right there in such a clear way
that it really helped me see it better.
i thought it might help some of you....
time to fix that faulty message, don't ya think???
i don't know.
but i'm gonna do it anyway.
sometimes i think it's 'fixed' and then sometimes
i know it's not.
it's one of those sneaky things that comes up in
well, i want different things to come up in weird
moments. not that.
and i think pam just helped me a lot to kinda hold
it in a different light.
thought maybe it could help you too.
(pam, i shoulda asked you if i could use the sentence!
but i kinda like the idea of you comin' over here
and bein' surprised.
i want you to see how much your words help.....)
