“To Be Loved” -Jackie Wilson
~Reality in Balance
Thank you again for visiting Reality in Balance as we come together for “I DESERVE to BE LOVED” from this multiple part series on Affirmations | for a Sexual Abuse Survivor | Part 43.

During my early childhood years, I may have perceived love in a state of opposition based on the non-representation of affection in my surroundings. Due to this, I’ve always felt that my needs weren’t being fulfilled in my relationships, work, or school as a sexual abuse survivor. I’d worryingly seek, in my little way, for someone to notice or care for me so that I can be a reflection of love through them.
In the past, my impulsive behavior to place people or things before myself may have been an easier practice in order to cope as a sexual abuse survivor, while disregarding inward pain. Could I be searching for some form of resolution in the people or things that are near me today that do not reciprocate in love? Are my surroundings fully supported and cared for? These types of questions as a sexual abuse survivor are prominent to establish self-love, a natural and deserving state!
Today I am aware that “I DESERVE TO BE LOVED”, but this can ONLY begin with the love of MYSELF, first! My past experiences, as a sexual abuse survivor could bring a strong sense of what love is through the ways of reflection- (journaling, talking, meditation), spending time with yourself- (having patience), and allowing space to heal- (being truthful/honest). Soon enough, I will begin to feel deserving of love, and my “conditions” will be supported by the daily acts of respectable love for myself as a sexual abuse survivor! “I DESERVE TO BE LOVED”
Balance & Peace…
