Cup Half Full: Molested as a Minor
God, has anyone ever tried a support group for people
who have been molested before? Is it difficult to have the courage to come
forward and own up to the abuse I may have experienced yesterday or fifty
years ago? What will people think? How will they judge me? I cannot take
something back that is shared, whether it be about being abused, or the
truth of being abused. What happened to me hurt, but it has no power over
me. I choose to own my life, and own my things, and own my decisions. I am
not owned by my things, my memories of someone doing bad things to me, or
decisions I made. That is why I can give what I want; I can keep what I
want. That is why I can be a part of a support group and still be able to
be separate enough to know when not to listen, and when not to speak, and
when someone is overstepping my boundaries. God, give me help in finding
my boundaries. Give me help in knowing that if I share, that most people
with my same problem are thinking about their life, and probably not going
to remember that much, anyway.
Hope You were encouraged.
Please come back anytime.
Email Sharon if You have something to share.
