Stained & Ashamed
I am a 29 year old woman, who recently has been having reaccuring flashbacks of childhood trauma. I was molested from 5 yrs old to 14 yrs old by a family friend. By the grace of God I was saved when their job relocated them very far away. Still, to this day though, I have not been able to talk about it to any counselor, friend, or even my husband to whom I’ve been married for 7 years. I can’t even find the courage to tell my mother about it. I am so ashamed that it happened; there is this mark of disgrace associated with it that I feel I am branded with. So I have buried it for years and turned away from it, only for the memories to come bubbling back up last month. I feel that I am no longer strong enough to bury them again and I must face them. But I am so ashamed and I pray for the courage to do something about it. Forgiveness is not going to come easy. So this is my first step - asking for prayer.
