Project Description

Were you sexually abused?

You are not alone. One in every three women and one in every seven boys were sexually abused before the age of 18 years.

If you were sexually abused as a child, you are probably still suffering under the long term effects of it on your life. You may be experiencing problems at work, in your relationship, sex, commitment, intimacy or in your own family. You may feel bad about yourself and think that there is something wrong with you as a person. Many of these problems as well as other problems can be linked to the sexual abuse which you experienced while growing up.

The damage and trauma caused by sexual abuse does not end when the abuse stops. There are long term consequences that may interfere with your day-to-day functioning.

How can I be healed?

The most important thing that you should know is that it is possible to be healed. You don’t have to live with the consequences of the abuse for the rest of your life. It can be different for you. You can have life in abundance again. To have life in abundance is more than simply sticking band-aids over the symptoms, more than just surviving and functioning. Abundance means experiencing a feeling of wholeness and healing. It means that you can experience satisfaction in your life and at work, true love and trust in your relationships and physical pleasure.

Don’t you owe it to yourself to break free from ‘the secret’ and start the process of your healing? The fact that you are reading this means that you are aware of the fact that this issue needs attention and that it could destroy your entire life. By reading this, you took the first step. Take the next step now to get assistance.
