Words that are silenced are lethal….

Words that are silenced, are lethal secrets to destroy your soul. Speak your truth.

Many times it’s hard to remember the exact details of all the great memories that my Mom and I shared in my childhood. The confusion and pain of being sexually abused as a child, tried to overshadow the good times.

For so many years, I was afraid to tell anyone because I thought that they wouldn’t believe me. I blamed myself and carried the shame of those secrets.

When I was 40 years old, I told my Mom that I had been molested & raped as a teenager…and she believed me. She then asked me to forgive her for not protecting me.

I fell to the ground, as I weeped and screamed from the depths of my soul, every ounce of pain that had been confined was being released, as she quietly and lovingly held me.

She then, told me that she too was sexually abused as a child. This moment, yet painful was the beginning of much healing in our relationship.

    So beautiful Denise! Praise God for your mom. I especially appreciate the beauty of her response since I didn’t have that experience. Quite the opposite. BOTH of my parents were my physical and verball & mental abusers all my childhood & continued to verbally & mentally abuse me in my adulthood. When I reported my sexual abuse by my father to my mother when it happened when I was just a young girl, she screamed obscenities at me & to shut up & then tried to suffocate me. REALLY tried to “silence me to death.” I
    never told anyone again.
    So, the blessing of the healing you were able to find with your mom is incredibly precious. I’m so happy for you. Praise God.
