Regaining A Sense Of Control After Sexual Abuse, quote by Drem

Being shuffled from one therapist to the next during a crisis of coming out with being sexual assaulted always ends up with the final words- FORGIVENESS. Forgive yourself, forgive the person and then you can truly move on. Well, I can’t. And that makes me feel guilty and worse than I already do. And then this happened…

On surviving the aftermath of sexual abuse:

“Someone told me today that I don’t have to forgive my predator.

It made me feel free from my pain for the first time since I was abused.

I have a choice. I have control. The choice and control I didn’t have before.”

  1. I have a HUGE opinion about people who say we can’t heal without forgiving our perpetrators. That is BS to the highest degree, a way to continue to make us feel as if we had a part in what happened. And yes, I realize this is my opinion. So glad you found comfort in knowing you can heal in the way that works best for you.

    1. “continue to make us feel as if we had a part in what happened” really REALLY hit home. I think you should write something on this and I’ll repost it here because you’re definitely on to something!
      And thank you ^-^
