What do I care how old I am?
The Ocean is old as fuck.
It will still drown your ass with vigor.
Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.

That’s really heavy and intense. I’m really really sorry that flashbacks are happening, and that you’re having a really hard time right now. I’m always here to talk/listen if you need to vent, or tell your story.
I know, personally, that it makes one feel empty, afraid that shit will never go back to normal, and it’s really fucking shitty and hard. There are amazing people to listen, or who have experienced similar shit. There are sites like this: http://www.7cupsoftea.com/
I find that getting my shit out in forms of music, or poetry, or grounding techniques, or cleansing my space helps me deal with all of the demons and flashbacks. Releasing those words and the anger out away from myself is really helpful.
Take your time, give yourself love and gratitude for all of the little things you do every day that mean so much. Sometimes, getting out of bed is the most difficult struggle, and if you get up, you deserve to know it was big, to say “hey, go me, i got out of bed today.” And if you don’t get out of bed, then congratulate yourself on a day of self care and solitude, sometimes it’s so necessary. Treat yourself, nurture your wounds, your scars and the parts of you that are healing.
I know you can get through this. You are strong and oh so brave <3
