This is what’s really happening. The reason it’s so hard to find your way out of that dark tunnel is because it’s become your comfort zone.
I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s how the brain works. The subconscious is no fan of change, and the dark tunnel is what it knows best. Even though this is a miserable place, that’s where your subconscious feels comfortable. And your brain has rewired itself to keep you there.
Fortunately, you can escape. Victims of child sexual abuse develop toxic coping skills in order to survive this kind of trauma. “Distorted thinking” and “disassociation from self” are the most common. Eliminate those coping skills, and you can move forward again on your healing journey.
Here’s how to do that. When you were a child, someone labeled you a bad person and said the abuse was your fault. Since then, you’ve been searching for proof to validate those false beliefs. Guess what? You’re looking for proof that doesn’t exist.
Stop doing that. Instead, create a new story about yourself based on the truth: You’re a good person, who was horribly abused as a child, and it was NEVER your fault.
That’s the truth. Now look for proof of your goodness. In the process, you’ll uncover more truth: You’re loveable, valuable, compassionate, strong, courageous, creative, and loyal. You’re all of these things and more.
You’ll never find proof in the dark tunnel. It doesn’t exist. Come out into the light. As you begin to heal, you’ll discover another amazing truth: You ROCK. Yes, you do!
