What the un-abused cannot understand is how a child can be raped and defiled, then smile at school the next day.
What I can say as a sex and physical child abuse survivor is that a lot of us victims don’t fully understand it either, except to explain that this is where fragmentation of the mind happens.
We function in multiple settings, some violent and horrific, some considered normal, and we move between these fragments in order to survive. As a species, we don’t fully understand the absolute capacity we have to get through horrible events and experiences. So, in order to thrive, there must be in all of us, an acceptance, instead of a need for explanations or closure that we may never recive.
Why do evil humans do what they do?
Let’s stop them.
We spend more time researching, than we do focusing in on victim rehabilitation and harsh sentencing for perpetrators.
We spend more time debating theologies on news panels for television time, than we do walking into the lives of the victims so we can truly understand what they have experienced.
If you want a solution to an epidemic like child abuse, ask some of us victims. You will find that maybe you should listen to us, whether you agree with our view or not. If you have not been a victim you really aren’t the expert. The victim is. To put yourself in your own absolute bubble makes you a part of the problem.
Start to listen, as we are speaking very loudly, and our Survivor Voices are rapidly growing.
