106 Survival Quotes organized by Most Popular
33 years ago my parents dragged our family here from the war on their own two feet, it was a matter of survival. We came to this country with no money, and not being able to speak the language. My mother pregnant with my older brother, and then myself a year after, found a job, learned the language, and provided for our family. My father who had suffered from post war syndrome was little help. So all I can remember of my mother in those early years was the she was never around. She was never around because she was busy fighting, she fought for our family to survive, because she had no choice. That’s why you work, because the alternative is unthinkable.
They told me how despite having help in the house she would get up every day to cook and clean and work. And that it was impossible to stop her despite her organs failing one after another. Up until her body stopped working she didn’t. I started to realize I of all people understood her the most. Work isn’t a choice, not when it comes to surviving.
That’s it. That’s all. We need to raise the bar. “Take me as I am” does not cut it anymore, we need to be better. We need to learn how to ask the yes or no questions and we need to read the damn signs. Cause for some people it’s just bad sex, but for others it’s a night where they felt their agency was taken away from them. We can’t have that anymore. Let’s stop taking power where power was never given to us in the first place.
