Healing from sexual abuse



Hi, I’m jack!

 I’m going to be honest, I was really hesitant to start a blog about healing from sexual abuse.

Sexual abuse is not a common blogging subject, but deep down I knew I needed to share.
Sadly, sexual abuse happens every single day and this blog is my way of helping those that have experienced it, like I have.

My mission is to help those who have been sexually abused feel empowered to speak up and seek help.

I share my own experience healing from sexual abuse in childhood and how it’s impacted my adult years.

I’d like to think I make a difficult subject more approachable and less taboo through my writing.

If we can bring light to a dark subject, my hope is that more women will feel empowered to speak up and let their truth out.

I’ll share my life, my hardships and my happy times through stories and poems.

I’m glad you’re here and even more excited to have a new friend.

My Story

 I am the girl who didn’t speak up.
The girl who was sexually abused and raped by two men in her family.

The girl who kept the men’s secrets for fear of causing trouble.
The girl who thought it was all her fault…

Febuary 13

Let’s get this straight.
I don’t want to write this.
But, I need to write this.

For the last 20 years, I have been sweeping February 13th under the rug…

Year 1

WordPress emailed me a couple days ago.
“Congratulations, today is your 1 year blogging anniversary!”

I scrolled back to my first post.
 “My Story…”

What's New On The Blog

Chocolate Cake

“Don’t!” I said as I pushed his hand up and off my upper thigh. 
“You don’t mean that,” he said
He was driving me to school and he was trying to feel me up along the way.
He forced his hand up my purple dress again.
“Why can’t you leave me alone?” I begged.
After a few seconds of silence, he asked, “What’s your favorite dessert?” 

The Grey Area

I got the news that one of my abusers passed away.
I’ve dreamt of this day a few times, and now that it’s here, I don’t know how to feel.
All I know is that one of the men who hurt me is gone…

Why I wrote the book

Baby J Says NO!

The Baby J Poem

When I was molested as a kid,
I thought it was because of something I did.
I felt scared and ashamed,
Like part of me would never be the same.
I was told to keep it a secret,
And that I would get in trouble if I didn’t keep it.
So I kept quiet.
Buried it.
Denied it.
I didn’t know what to do,
Or who to turn to.
I didn’t know,
That I could say “No!”
I’ve always hated my story regarding sexual abuse,
Until I realized that I could put it to good use.
Because sadly my story is not unique,
It’s more common than you think.
Children are being sexually abused every day,
And it’s not fucking okay…

4 Places To Seek Help From Sexual Abuse

Seeking help for sexual abuse is important.
Sometimes it may feel like there is no one you can turn to.

I know I felt like that before Rob was in my life, but even then I didn’t want to burden him with all of my pain.
So, I sought help outside of him…

My One Message To The World If I Were To Die Tomorrow

Why did I wait so long to speak up about being sexually abused?

At the time, I was scared.
I was told I would get in trouble.
That no one would believe me.

I was embarrassed, I didn’t want anyone to know, not my neighbors or friends at school.

I was afraid of getting rejected by my Mother.
I knew someone who was thrown out on the street when she told her Mother that her step-dad was molesting her.
I feared the same thing would happen to me because my Mother and I never had a good relationship…

The First Step To Healing from Sexual Abuse

Bury it, carry it and avoid it.
This was how I dealt with the pain of being sexually abused.

I carried this painful burden for 26 years, because I didn’t think there was any other option.
I thought my life was destined to be one of misery because of what happened to me as a kid…
