As I was abused I learned that what had occurred to me was not OK and that, if I’d talked about it, I would cause more pain. I may have been manipulated, threatened, or coerced by my abuser about the effects of telling what happened.
Perhaps no one was there to help me when I was abused. Maybe I did try to tell those around me, and I was either ignored or not taken seriously. Because I was a small child, I may have been easily convinced that telling someone or to ask for help was pointless, and not being taken seriously nor protected was “normal.”
Today I now know that I had the right as a child to talk about what happened to me. I should have been protected from further abuse, and I had a right to experience comfort and receive nurturing after the abuse took place.
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 aSurvivor-Stay in action on your healing journey every day and meditate on these concepts,“I Have a Right to Talk About What Happened to Me.”
