Let’s Begin with the Affirmation,
Not knowing how to cope with the impressions of shame from sexual abuse was a lot for me to comprehend at first. After all, a child shouldn’t have to analyze trauma to begin development.
As time went on, I began to notice the negative affirmations that I spoke of myself every day and how it had materialized through life in an unfulfilling way. In this state, I’d attract and bond with people dealing with childhood trauma similar to me.
I Can Make Mistakes and Still Be Ok with my past experiences that made me stronger today. I won’t allow shame or false perceptions to block my destiny because making mistakes in life is a reality that we all have to live to see.
No matter where you are right now on your journey as a sexual abuse survivor, remember that there is more to you than what the eyes may perceive of yourself at this time. You are a Survivor-Stay in action on your healing journey every day and meditate on these concepts, "I Can Make Mistakes and Still Be Ok!”
Visualize the Affirmation, see it in color or as shaded black and white, however, the mind perceives it, allowing for the current response to form naturally. Listen to yourself without judgment and begin to frequently journal this process as you transition the mind to a higher awareness of yourself.
