While on this site and doing research I often find I do not know the meaning of an Acronys. I need you to help me>
Recently I found a table about telling your story:
A victim "hides their story"
A Survivor "is nor afraid to tell their story to safe people"
A thriver "goes beyond telling their story, but are aware they have created their own healing with HP"
What does HP stand for?
Im finishing our South African site this weekend and want to include acronym guide.
