Experiencing childhood sexual or physical abuse leaves a mark on the heart, body, and soul that feels like everyone can see and yet nobody can help remove. Although logically it is understood the abuse was the choice on the part of the abuser, survivors of childhood trauma often feel unable to shake the feeling of shame brought on by thoughts of “It was my fault.” Survivors almost always try to live in a state of denial because addressing the affects of abuse- well, there are just no words. However, the words themselves- when spoken aloud in the presence of a skilled professional- are what begin the healing process. Like the spring rains on dormant land, when you speak the truth of what happened to you, a new season of renewal, growth and transformation can blossom.
