Most of my life I have wondered why I was molested as a child. As I have grown older, there is an acceptance that I will never know or understand, but I do know and understand this: I have survived and I can support you in your growth and survival as well. I want you to know that if you have been sexually assaulted in any way, by anyone, and if you are a survivor, you have found a home on this page. If you are male, female, African American, Native American, Norwegian, gay, straight, Catholic or Muslim and have been sexually assaulted, you have found a home on this page. Welcome fellow Survivor!!
It’s important for you to know that I’m not a victim. I don’t have a big chip on my shoulder and I do my darndest to make sure I don’t treat anyone else as a victim or victimize others by bullying, judging etc. I will not become my abuser. I will not…. This blog is not for judgement. I think those things are left to a higher power, who I call God. I understand that your higher power may have another name, or maybe your life experiences have led you to believe you don’t have a named higher power; it’s ok for us to be different, to embrace our differences! You have a home on this site.
I’m not perfect; I will make writing errors, I will have opinions different than yours, and I may say something inadvertently that is hurtful. Always come back to this statement, “I only want to support the survivor in you.” Anyone not supporting each other as a survivor will not be allowed on the site. The plan is to provide research and insight into ways to grow stronger!
