Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Sky.

Most, if not all, sexual abuse survivors feel what you're feeling. And it's not at all uncommon to still feel that way in adulthood. Try not to judge yourself during this time. These feelings are residual, left over from when you were a little girl. You did nothing wrong. Try telling yourself what you would tell one of your own children to comfort them.

I send you love and heartfelt healing energy.
