We can’t escape our childhood sexual abuse without shame. It sticks to us no matter how much we achieve and in spite of loving relationships. This disempowering feeling is one of the big challenges in healing… which means it also holds some of our richest insights to help us live our potential.
For me, healing this misplaced belief about myself meant going back to the moment shame seeped into my being and took root. That’s when I got to see the circumstance in context… through the eyes of childhood, trauma, powerlessness, and betrayal. That’s when I could see the shame I had taken forward was not mine… and release it.
