Did you know that as early as 1993, the American Psychological Association published a report referencing 45 clinical studies that found Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) often occurred in crime victims of childhood sexual violence? When survivors of childhood sexual violence and others experience PTSD, the disorder mirrors the PTSD war veterans suffer, so please be forgiving and gentle with yourself or your loved one.
If you are a trauma survivor, you already know healing is not easy, but remember you are NEVER alone. Your fellow survivors, loved ones, and supporters are with you in spirit, and we are praying for you every day from all over the world. THAT'S A LOT OF LOVE ALL FOR YOU!!!
If you are a loved one beginning or continuing to provide support for someone on their healing journey, be assured that your love and support means the world to your loved one. Just listening, being compassionate and non-judgmental helps immensely! GOD BLESS YOU!!!
If you are a minister, therapist, or someone else who serves trauma survivors, GOD BLESS YOU, TOO!!!
I hope we have added some peacefulness to your day. We pray you find your inner strength and continue your healing journey or continue being someone’s light in the darkness.
