CSA: Overcoming Sexual Abuse

on December 15, 2011

“You know the pain of living with lies. Now, in order to free yourself from the pain and scars of the abuse, it is important to recall forgotten memories, to stop denying and minimizing the abuse, and to stop defending your family and the abuser. Stop lying to others, and stop lying to yourself. You will face many truths in the recovery process: truths about what really happened, truths about your parents and the rest of your childhood family, truths about the abuser, and finally, truths about yourself.” –The Right to Innocence by Beverly Engel
