I am an author, blogger and incest survivor who offers hope, inspiration and practical insights for survivors of childhood sexual abuse so each one can live an empowered life apart from the effects of abuse.
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. ”
