I’ve wanted to share more insight on my journey of healing & forgiveness, so here goes. As challenging as it can be – healing from childhood abuse is possible. My journey has been one gaining self-awareness, self-acceptance, hope, purpose & self-love.
The impact of childhood abuse held me captive for some number of years. I literally became sick and tired of repeating the words of my childhood experiences to myself & to others…my mouth, my mind, my emotions & my soul needed a new story! I no longer cared why it happened, I just wanted to be released from that story.
I felt that having been abused pasted an obvious message across my face, which read…I was unworthy, I would never amount to anything & that no one would ever see me as anything…but, as an abused person. In truth, this is how I saw myself (the lies created by abuse). I felt ashamed, repulsed & isolated. Then I felt mad…angry & resentful towards my perpetrators…lastly, exhausted & worn out!
The impact from childhood abuse held me captive!
My mouth, my mind, my emotions & my soul needed a new story! Healing has given to me a new story.
Healing is possible! It is indeed possible to live beyond the Impact of childhood abuse.
Are you creating new stories that override the impact of painful childhood memories?
