Trauma is isolating; healing doesn’t have to be
Trauma changes the way we think, feel and behave. It makes us believe that others can’t be trusted, that there’s something wrong with us, and that we somehow caused or intended for the traumatic event(s) to happen.
This is especially true for survivors of sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, childhood sexual abuse, and/or exploitation, because of the stigma that surrounds these traumas.
