What is the real impact of sexual abuse?
The question implies that some consequences aren’t real, some aren’t as far reaching as others. I was deliberate with my choice of words; sexual assault has the far-reaching impact that can devastate the rest of your life.
I made this video to drew attention to the fact that sexual violence has far-reaching effects. To get over this impact, we have to give ourselves permission to process the pain and move on.
In the video I discussed one impact that abuse had on my life, it is worth saying that it affects our parenting, marriage, interpersonal relationships, career, employment, it touches all areas of our lives. With something with such far-reaching effects, what can we do to limit the extent of the damage?
