Healing & Sexual Abuse
The Courage to Love with the Pain

Having worked with sexually abused & assaulted men and women I know that there are unspeakable things that people endure and the fact that they still get up each morning is an inspiration to me. No one really heals as though the wounding never happened; rather the pain becomes part of who we are. Words of comfort do not make the passage less challenging, rather they aid us in our ability to endure it.

It is through pain that we learn to be empathic toward others and thus part of who we are. While we do not have the choice to keep many painful events from happening to us, we do have the control and power to determine what we allow our pain to become and what it shapes us into.

While it seems there are many who have a challenging road still ahead in their attempts to come to terms with their painful past, I am certain that having support and love shown by others make the burden more bearable. If you have been sexually abused remember that seeking out love and sharing sexual intimacy is a testament to your courage as vulnerability is strength. Many sexual abuse & assault victims suffer in silence fearing their own feelings and their partners reactions to them. If you struggle with it or know someone who does find support and know that there is hope, love and beauty in sexuality.
