Excellent article!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Sarah, you've pinpointed so many of the effects of child abuse. I couldn't agree more with your position on the way we think of ourselves. When we change what we think about who we are, we change how we feel about who we are. And though this may be difficult at first, practice makes it easier to believe those newly created thoughts. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about child abuse, and your healing process with my visitors and me, Sarah.

Oh Oh how true you are Sarah
by: Maurice

Honesty comes true in all you share in the telling of your story. I have experienced and put myself through a fair share of it all. But certainly for the past twelve years I have put a greater value on the real me. I have prayed, I have acknowledged that God created me beautiful, knit me together in my mothers womb and birthed me a lovely gift and child to her in 1946. I now hug myself alot, I have a fantastic mirror image of myself. because I love me. You too hopefully will arrive at where I have too. It certainly takes a long time for each of us to overcome our abuse. We all have our own way of coping with it. I used negative ways some of which you mention Sarah. Once I said no to those ways, after acknowledgeing that I had been abused. Then a whole new world of me came alive. Darlene's site has enabled me to have a greater and higher respect and love for myself. and accept that I am special, I am beautiful and I can love me. even at sixty two I can do that. it certainly helps me to live my life to the full. thinking positive, acting positive and being positive making a sense of my life each day and all that happens me. Sarah Thank You. Good on you. Hi find that one friend or friends and just be your now beautiful self person with them, aloow them to love for who you are now. Keep working at getting all the right help professional and otherwise from your friends. Be brave, be strong and persevere at accepting the lovely woman you are now and have become after all you've journeyed through in your life. Let your faith be your inner peace and stre ngth.
