Healing the effects of childhood sexual abuse
Written for the Sentinel
A Happy childhood can provide a strong foundation to build a life on. But a traumatic experience can seem to weaken that foundation and leave bad effects that carry into adulthood. Sexual abuse, like any harmful experience, claims to cause permanent damage because one cannot go back and undo what has been done. When it happens to children, it seems even worse, because they have to deal with something they don't even understand.
Can the effects of sexual abuse in childhood be healed? Yes, if we understand that man, God's child, is more than the physical being he appears to be and that God is something more than a faraway figure.
