Healing From Sexual Abuse


Healing is a process in which something that was once broken, changed, or damaged from its original state, sets path to recover as it once was. Healing from sexual abuse is possible. It is possible to exist in a space in which the trauma and pain experienced from sexual abuse can aid oneself and others to their predestined purpose. Healing doesn't mean that everything about one's sexual abuse occurrences is understood. It doesn't mean that no bad memories or thoughts will be revisited. Healing from sexual abuse is a journey to which one's wholeness will arrive within their willingness and determination towards living a life that is unequivocally one of peace. It will first require a clear understanding of exactly what needs to be healed. There are several definitions and expressions of sexual abuse, assault, and violence throughout the internet and varies other places. We hope to help better explain them through our illustrations of some of their occurrences.  Many sexual violation occurrences may be categorized as one or more of the following, and are not limited to our depiction of the terms. Sexual Abuse is unwanted sexual activity, with perpetrators using force, making threats or taking advantage of victims not able to give consent. Sexual Assault is sexual contact or behavior that occurs without explicit consent of the victim. Sexual Violence is any attempted or sexual act (advance) against a person unwanted or unlawful.
