the thing about trauma is how do we heal when the pain isn't confined to the past? how do we move forward when harm is still being inflicted. There is literally no "post-traumatic" for colonized people.


Brene Brown said that hope is a function of struggle. Those who have gone through more trauma hold onto hope because they know they can get through it. Nayyirah Waheed also wrote, "I don't pay attention to the world ending. For me it has ended many times and began again in the morning." This is a long winded way of me saying everyone dealing with colonial trauma is strong and powerful and is doing 1000000x more than anyone who doesn't have to deal with that pain. Periodt.
