Our Sexual Abuse - A mother and daughter's journey: Embarking on the Journey of Healing from Childhood Sexual Abuse

oursexualabuse:

I should probably start this by admitting how scared I am to write this down and publish it for the world to possibly see. I should probably start this by telling you my story in a nutshell. I should probably start this by telling you the motivation behind this blog. Why do I feel so compelled…

“Children who are victimized through sexual abuse often begin to develop deeply held tenets that shape their sense of self: ‘My worth is my sexuality. I’m dirty and shameful. I have no right to my own physical boundaries.’ That shapes their ideas about the world around them: ‘No one will believe me. Telling the truth results in bad consequences. People can’t be trusted.’ It doesn’t take long for children to begin to act in accordance with these belief systems.
For girls who have experienced incest, sexual abuse, or rape, the boundaries between love, sex, and pain become blurred. Secrets are normal, and shame is a constant.”
