I am a survivor of extremely severe ritualistic childhood abuse and sadistic systematic torture. This blog has helped me get my voice back and documents the journey I'm on to heal from the trauma and damage caused by that appalling abuse. Now is the time for me to tell of MY experience by speaking the truth about MY life. I will be silenced no more! On this blog I share MY life, MY healing journey; helpful quotes/stuff I come across and MY thoughts along the way. The more I speak out the more liberated I am from the shame and trauma of the abuse. My broken wings are gradually being repaired. Without God in my life I wouldn't still be here. But somehow, I keep on staying alive, surviving and rarely, occasionally, living a little!

The Messages Abuse Give Us

“There are verbal and non-verbal messages in abuse. My abusers told me things that demeaned me, but the abuse carried its own messages. It communicated, “You’re not worth protecting,” “You’re only good for sex,” and other shameful expressions. I still listened to those lies, believed them and obeyed them until I brought them to the light to discredit them.”

This is wonderful! And I really like this website too. I think I found it though yours a long time ago. Thank you!

Hi Eve, yes I found this quote very helpful, it came off OSA's FB page rather than their website.

Dear Friend Fi:) I sent you a little package in the mail, it is nothing much, but I made it myself:) It is just a little envelope and it should get to you in the next week, I sent it last week. Much love to you today. I have been thinking of you. I will be praying for you today!
