" Don't read Living for Today then because my message is on forgiving evil.
However I do go in depth of the healing cycle of sexual abuse.

“Hiding my pain and acting strong, afraid to cry and show my tears, I struggle with all this years later.”
Erin Merryn, Living for Today: From Incest and Molestation to Fearlessness and Forgiveness

“The very first part in healing is shattering the silence,”
Erin Merryn, Living for Today: From Incest and Molestation to Fearlessness and Forgiveness

“Along with the trust issues, one of the hardest parts to deal with is the feeling of not being believed or supported, especially by your own grandparents and extended family. When I have been through so much pain and hurt and have to live with the scars every day, I get angry knowing that others think it is all made up or they brush it off because my cousin was a teenager. I was ten when I was first sexually abused by my cousin, and a majority of my relatives have taken the perpetrator's side. I have cried many times about everything and how my relatives gave no support or love to me as a kid when this all came out. Not one relative ever came up to that innocent little girl I was and said "I am sorry for what you went through" or "I am here for you." Instead they said hurtful things: "Oh he was young." "That is what kids do." "It is not like he was some older man you didn't know." Why does age make a difference? It is a sick way of thinking. Sexual abuse is sexual abuse. What is wrong with this picture? It brings tears to my eyes the way my relatives have reacted to this and cannot accept the truth. Denial is where they would rather stay.”
