Lessons I'm learning as a survivor

Calling all survivors of child abuse

So I’ve been looking for you… yes YOU!

I was beaten, strangled, verbally assaulted and mentally abused as a child.

Were you? I ask because I can’t find you.. what I experienced was abuse! But when I type in “child abuse survivors” on google or other search engines very little comes up for those that experienced physical abuse as children There is much out there for survivors of child sexual abuse. 

Is that because people believe that beating is discipline? Is that because corporal punishment of a child is seen as the parents  “raising” of a child. Is that because many still say..”well I was beaten as a child and I survived”  Isn’t a violation of a child a violation? Is child sexual abuse seen as more of a violation than beating a child? Both break the child! Both violate and both cause irreversible damage! 

I know I’m not alone as a survivor of child abuse… my heart breaks for anyone who was violated in anyway during their childhood. Nothing is more devastating to a child than an adult who uses their power against a child. 

I stand with all survivors… I just wanted others to know if you were beaten, mentally abused, emotionally abused as a child.. you are not alone.. 

I’ve been searching for you … to let you know there is someone else out here that understands, recognizes and validates your experience.

Let’s reach out to each other… 

We are not alone…

  1. Yes, I agree. Child abuse is profoundly damaging, regardless of whether it is sexual abuse, spiritual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse, the soul murder of neglect, or various combinations of the above.

    I am so glad I found your blog. I must get to sleep now, as I need to get up in a few hours to have a minor surgical procedure and biopsy. But later, I will come back and read more posts on your blog. God bless!

  2. Been down that road; childhood sexual abuse, verbal and physical abuse. All childhood. It’s taken me many seasons towards healing. Honestly, if it wasn’t for God’s grace, I wouldn’t be breathing today because I was a mess coming from that hell. Thank you for sharing.๐Ÿ’

  3. I am here with you! My siblings and I endured physical, sexual, verbal and mental abuse. Even today at age 50 I feel different than everyone around me. Helping others get through the residual damage of childhood trauma is my mission.
