Watch the grieving process at work.
I am a victim of sexual abuse, trying to make a way to survivor and thrive r. After reflecting on my feelings and actions, I realized that they fit the model of grief. Though the steps are slightly jumbled up, probably having something to do with my unbearable desire to heal and get over what happen to me, I realized that I am grieving. I’m grieving the loss of my control, the loss of my childhood and innocence.
I recently started a website dedicated to my journey through grief and healing. I believe that offering my testimony and my daily thinking and feelings, may help someone along their journey, letting them know that they are not alone....That what they are feeling is very common, hoping to give them a sense of reassurance.
I believe in the power of testimony and the need to spread awareness about sexual abuse. It is a terrible act, rendering numerous detrimental effects, and I truly believe that it is a loss, a loss great enough to be paid attention to in research and study on grief.
I would like to invite you to my website, www.AQuartertoEmmaus.com to watch the the transition between the stages of grief and learn what strategies others have used to help with their grief.
