Abuse Angry Anxiety PTSD Sad Sexual Abuse Therapy Trauma Traumatized
Hey, this is me! Making a video was really scary at first, but once it was up I felt so relieved and happy and welcomed.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience, Sarah. “That’s something that happened to you–that’s not who you are” resonates so deeply with me. I had a really wonderful therapist who said those words to me several years ago, and it’s taken so so long to internalize that. I don’t know that I really have actually. (See bursting into tears when you said it.) I’d spent decades thinking that those traumas and my varying diagnoses defined my very existence. But you’re right and my therapist was right: these traumas are things that happened–they’re not who I am. I just wanted to thank you for reminding me of that truth. Much love!
