“They themselves have not been abused, but someone with whom they are close has been. There are mixtures of feelings that are oftentimes very confusing. Moments of anger, confusion, sorrow, bafflement, all while still feeling great love and compassion for the person who is suffering. How does one sort out these feelings while trying to be a support?”
Recovery and healing from childhood sexual abuse is a difficult battle, not only for the abused but also for spouses and partners. Gina has been a wonderful support for me while I continue my healing and I can’t stress how critical it has been for me to have her by my side as we face this together.
