April 2008 - Restoring Humpty Dumpty

Sexual abuse is terrible, especially when a child is involved. It affects every part of a person. Since most of the wounding from sexual abuse influences the deepest part of a person’s soul, it is not easily seen by others.

As a very small child I was the victim of sexual abuse … as I grew up I felt alone, abandoned, unloved, and disconnected from myself, as well as from others. I also had depression, trust issues, suicidal tendencies, and no self-worth or sense of self-care. In fact, for most of my life I felt like I was a bother to people with nothing of value to say. I did not allow myself to dream of the future, or imagine what I wanted to be as an adult. I often wondered why I had been born and questioned my purpose on earth.

In this article, I will discuss the developmental stages of my life and how the sexual abuse affected me emotionally, psychologically, mentally, physically, spiritually and relationally.

Why did Christ die for you?
