When we name what we have experienced - especially when we were told that no one would listen to or believe us, or when we were not taught the words we'd need in order to tell - we take power back from those who meant to silence us, and we reclaim control over the narrative of our lives. When we question, reword, or invert the stories we learned to tell about ourselves, we are changed -
we begin to be restoryed."
