Trauma creates a voice of self-doubt and deceit and seeks to tear us down. This powerful video uniquely depicts how survivors of trauma are often confronted by the voice of trauma that seeks to prevent them from ever fully healing or reaching their full potential.
Worthwhile Wear works with survivors of human trafficking in its outreach and housing programs to overcome the voice of trauma, and one tool Worthwhile Wear uses is words of affirmation and encouragement. Worthwhile Wear works with women to think of themselves in a positive way, and then asks them to write encouraging words to themselves, and also encouraging words to other women that may read their notes. Some of these notes are highlighted at the end of this short film, and represent the hundreds more that exist.
