True, there may not be any compassionate, supportive people in your life. But you and I both know you probably aren’t asking for support either.
How is that possible? How can you desperately need support and not ask for it?
Easy. As a survivor of child sexual abuse, you don’t know what you “need.” Before you can ask for support, you have to know what you need, right? In order to do that, you must not only be aware of your feelings but also comfortable expressing them. Not an easy task for a trauma survivor like you. The brain tends to disconnect from the body during trauma.
Here’s some good news. You can manually override this brain response. You do that by admitting this is a new skill for you. It’s going to take practice, so you give yourself permission to go slowly. You take baby steps. You’re compassionate with yourself during this learning process.
For those of you who are ready to ask for support, you’re going to love my new, online, biweekly support group!
The members of my group are survivors just like you. Compassionate, supportive, good people. We meet every two weeks and address a specific topic in each meeting. Then the floor is opened to the members. Pre-registration is required, and there’s a $25 fee for each meeting.
When you’re ready, come join us online. Survivors are stronger together. They truly are. You’ll see!
