Overcoming Sexual Abuse inspires, empowers, educates & supports male and female survivors of sexual abuse. We hope you participate and share your stories, feelings, victories, defeats, insights & hopes along the way to embracing your new life. If you know someone else who would benefit from joining us, invite them to come along.
The message from abusers is that it’s not safe to tell; that’s the same message that survivors are given by others when we try to talk about our abuse: 'Talking about it will make you feel worse.' Or 'Why drag all of that up? It will just drag you down with it.' Talking about abuse didn’t make me feel worse; it helped me get better. Do you know what made me feel worse? Being told not to talk about it. ”
