I created and designed this “Once a Victim, Now a Survivor” award in March/2015, as I wanted it to represent and award those who have struggled with mental illness, and especially everyone who is living with C/PTSD (complex/post-traumatic stress disorder). PTSD includes those dealing with trauma, abuse and for many childhood sexual abuse. We were victims once, but now we are Survivors
So pay it forward if you’d like and nominate others; it’s a way to recognize some of the bloggers you’ve discovered who are worthy of this award OR accept it for yourself. You can display it on your own blog and be proud of it. Congrats!
