A Quote for Child Abuse Survivors

by Michelle X
(England, United Kingdom)

I found this quote and would like to share it:

"Out of the most suffering the strongest of people emerge, but the largest of characters are covered in scars."

I really related to this and hope that others can too. This blog has really helped me.

Thank you x

If I haven't left you a comment or one that is in-depth, please do not take my lack of a personal response as a slight, or as a statement that your story is somehow unworthy of my time. Nothing, and I do mean nothing, could be further from the truth. If there was a way for me to respond to all of you at length, I would.

Michell X where you found it was to be. This blog has really helped me how right you are for yourself and I can say it for myself too. A blog that heals and gives endless natural support comments from all Visititors to the site. Darlene's stewardship makes it all so possible for us to hear and read what other abused say and feel. Many give us the true and real story of the effects abuse has had on their lives. The knowing that the others emphatise with me having received the same type of abuse as I did that makes me feel valued and worthwhile. Makes me Special. Many people who are not aware of the effects of the abuse on the innocent child's life use words of cocomfort but cannot feel the pain or the hurt within. That is why the blog has helped me. Knowing Darlene who set it up went through the pain and the hurt of abuse herself. Her telling and relating her story has given me great hope and faith in her comments to her visitors. Michelle I shall keep this quote of yours and pass it on. Thank you.
