Respect others' boundaries.

Intervene when someone's in trouble.
Notice the warning signs of abuse and speak up.
Nurture myself and others
Perhaps one of the most devastating wake-up calls I will have to sustain as a sexual abuse survivor is to experience disbelief from supportive family members. This is particularly perplexing and hurtful if my abusers were members of my immediate family.
As a child, my safe-haven was my bedroom. I may have clung to a belief that at least in my bedroom surrounded by my personal items, I was safe. To acknowledge betrayal by any of my family members was unthinkable. I had indefinitely learned to be loyal even to those who were abusing me. My life & sanity relied on it.
Today, my child-within needs & deserves to be believed, heard, & supported as she walks a difficult & painful past through recovery. She not only deserves to know but demands to know the truth about her family and may require subtle understanding & support as she embraces this reality.
If I need to create distance from family members to protect myself during recovery, I will find the strength to do so. I will own all my feelings about having to do this & will express them with trusted people.
Grieving the loss of family can be excruciating, & continuing to maintain my distance will be challenging at times. The natural response of my child-within will be to crave her immediate family. When these feelings arise, I will listen, comfort, & protect her. My adult-self can provide the strength & stamina to walk with her through loneliness & even possibly sorrow. She & I will heal together.
No matter where you are right now on your journey as a sexual abuse survivor, remember that there is more to you than what the eye may perceive of the self at this time. You are a Survivor-Stay in action on your healing journey every day and meditate on these concepts, “I Can Distance Myself from Non-Supportive Family Members.”
Visualize the Affirmation, see it in color or as shaded black and white, however, the mind perceives it, allow for the current response to form naturally. Listen to yourself without judgment and begin to frequently journal this process as you transition the mind to higher knowledge of yourself. “I Can Distance Myself from Non-Supportive Family Members.”
