Tomorrow, Tiffany will be joined by child rape survivor, author, TedX speaker, and International Speaker, Madeleine Black, from Scotland.
In her own words:
I want to end the shame, stigma and silence surrounding sexual violence enabling others to find their voice, whatever their story is. I want people to know that it’s not what happens to us that is important but what we do with it. I will show how changing my mindset tapped into my resilience and transformed my life, making people question their own thinking and encouraging them to see that there are always choices to make, and if we choose to, we can get past anything that happens to us in life both professionally and in our personal life. I wants to encourage others to live their life courageously too; but ultimately, I want to inspire hope and show people that we are all so much stronger than we think we are.
I hope you’ll make some time tomorrow, to tune in and hear more from Madeleine. I also hope that you’ll understand that this is a pretty sensitive topic, and can be a difficult show for some, so please be careful, and gentle, with yourself in deciding whether or not to tune in, and also after you do. This is difficult stuff, and for many of us, the discussion can be empowering, but also a bit triggering.
That being said, I think Madeleine has a powerful message that many of us dealing with just the trauma of living through “everything” right now will benefit from hearing, about the strength and resilience we all have.
