I am trying something different for Project Unbreakable. Traditionally Project Unbreakable is photographs of survivors of abuse holding posters about their abuse. Sometimes the survivor shows their identity, sometimes they do not.
I am a blogger and doodler. I use art therapy to calm my nerves. I post this art on my blog along with my thoughts on Sexual Abuse and Recovery at MiaThriver.com . It seems fitting to draw my Project Unbreakable images instead of using the traditional photographs.
I have created four doodles for Project Unbreakable instead of just one image. After suffering a lifetime of abuse at the hands of my father it was hard to sum up the abuse in just four images. These four images represent some of my trauma memories at different ages.
I am working on Thriving and taking back my life. I am the only person in my family who broke free. My mother and my sisters are still under the abusers influence. They turned against me and back-stabbed me. I lost my mother and all my sisters to my pedophile fathers influence.
I am now working on moving forward, and learning to Thrive. I have broken free from my abuser. I am still trying to figure out thriving. It is not easy. So I keep persisting and I don’t give up.
