Men can help the #MeToo cause by first listening to the women in their lives. In the case of my wife, she just wants to be heard. As men, we naturally want to fix things, but we need to remember to simply pause and just listen. Instead of going into a "fix it" mode, try to solve the issue together with your wife or partner. Solving is something you do together; fixing is what you do on your own. Ask her what you can do together to make things better. - Michael Neeley

In 2006, Tarana Burke founded the #MeToo Movement to help survivors of sexual violence, particularly young women of color from low wealth communities, find pathways to healing. Using the idea of “empowerment through empathy,” the #MeToo Movement was ultimately created to ensure survivors know they're not alone in their journey.
The #MeToo Movement has built a community of survivors from all walks of life. By bringing vital conversations about sexual violence into the mainstream, we're helping to de-stigmatize survivors by highlighting the breadth and impact sexual violence has on thousands of women, and we’re helping those who need it to find entry points to healing. Ultimately, with survivors at the forefront of this movement, we're aiding the fight to end sexual violence. We want to uplift radical community healing as a social justice issue and are committed to disrupting all systems that allow sexual violence to flourish.
"Sometimes our purpose is to simply be still, be patient, and find out what our next purpose is in life." - Josh Trent
"Our inner turmoil leads us to think that we have to lie to other people; even our partners. However, when our consciousness kicks in, it helps us realize that the other person is an adult and they can handle the truth. In a loving way, we can tell someone the truth. Don't try to sugar coat, lie, or make something up just to appease someone because it won't serve them in the end anyway." - Michael Neeley
"If your relationship isn't working, don't try to hang onto it. Be honest with yourself and be honest with each other. Then, move away from each other lovingly. Just because you're no longer in the relationship doesn't mean you have to stop loving them. You can love them in a different way and still be friends." - Michael Neeley
"To master The Art of Forgetting, you have to ignore all these made up stories. You have to successfully remove the made up thoughts and ideas you've invented in your mind." - Michael Neeley
"If everything is done from love, then you're on the right path." - Michael Neeley
