21 Days to Build A Habit
by No Longer Silenced Movement
I follow a lot of different Nike accounts via instagram, and since the beginning of January they promoted the 21 days to build a habit notion. While, scientifically speaking there might not be indefinite evidence to support the claim, it’s safe to say if you do something everyday, for 3 weeks in a row, you will make a habit of it…good or bad.
From this I wanted to build a 21 day child abuse survivor challenge, promoting healing and seeing how you’ve grown in a positive way, after getting away from your abuse. While we all deal with things differently, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel helps everyone to l ook past their darkest days. For this challenge, I’m going to give the challenges three days at a time, all involving something you need to write down.
Here’s your first three days:
Day One – Write about a bond you were able to form that came from being a survivor
Day Two- What is a positive trait you developed from being a survivor
Day Three- What is a weakness/struggle that you want to work on that you developed from abuse, and how has it already improved compared to what it was.
Keeping looking out for the next 3 day set of the survivor challenge!
Sounds like fun. Do I post my entries on my blog or on yours? Or maybe just a link? How does this work?
You can do it however you’d like! We’d love to be able to read what have you to say!

My answer: Other survivors know that only another survivor can truly understand what they have been through, therefore, it is easy to bond with other survivors of child abuse because we have authenticity in our sharing.
A positive trait I developed from being a survivor is Perspective. I came to realize that every living person has had some kind of trauma. My trauma does not make me special, nor does it make me a freak. Everybody has trauma.
