Nurture myself and others
Sexual abuse aided an authority of isolation & seclusion that not one thing or person could seem to reach for some time. Distrust of people occurred during those moments of violation when an unrest Spirit was born. Sexual abuse did fixate on an empty place within that could receive no visitors.
I felt disconnected from my family & perhaps even myself and was okay with that. But to progress, heal, & grow part of me will be one of my greatest lessons yet. I admit to being so well acquainted with feeling isolated that connecting may be extremely “nerve-racking” at first. Although, when I look within, I am acutely aware of a need to feel naturally connected to the cornerstones of myself, others, reality, & my Spiritual source.
My sense of connectedness will continue to develop as I rightfully acknowledge old feelings of isolation & loneliness as it arises. Sometimes, I may find that I feel the most isolated when I am repressing emotions, but to express my honest feelings will create a trusting bond with myself & my child-within.
I am willing to reach out to others to reclaim an outer scope of perception in this reality- especially when feeling the most alone. Giving a voice to my needs & also taking action on them will destroy my past offender’s scheme to keep me isolated & mute forever.
I will often recall that I’m most capable & deserving ofbeing connected to spirit and self in a healthy & life-supporting way.
