Empowering Survivors of Abuse & Trauma

~By Danielle S.  (17 yr. old writer and survivor of abuse)

I was shielded from understanding just how wrong sexual abuse is. I knew it went against how I was taught, but had no idea just how wrong it was. Illegal? It never crossed my mind. Even though I didn't know what "he" was doing to me was against the law, I knew it wasn't right. Eventually I spoke up about it.

Listen. If you are being sexually abused, don't be afraid to speak up! Tell someone. For all you who have spoken up -You're a hero! My hat goes off to you! You are awesome and I honor you for the choice you made. You did the right thing! Don't ever doubt that! And yes, I know there are moments of doubt. I still struggle with those and probably always will. But I have to remember I didn't do this! "He" did this by his choice of actions! And you can remember that too. None of this is your fault. You are helping fix a messed up situation that someone else created.

You can do it! I am behind you, as are countless others!

friends at work have been searching about. The niche of up to date info on this network is one of a kind and appreciated and will assist my wife and I in our studies while I am at work. It shows that all of the members here acquired a large amount of specifics about the stuff I am interested in and the other hyper links and types of info also show it. Typically i'm not on the web all of the time but when I drinking a beer im always avidly searching for this sort of information and things closely related to it. If anyone gets a chance, take a look at my site. near Conyers Georgia 30012
