NO sexual assault is NEVER the victim’s fault.
If this has happened to you, I am so sorry and NO, it wasn’t your fault.
Many of my clients carry residual confusion, pain, and disconnection within them after being sexually assaulted.
THIS WOUND IS A MISUNDERSTANDING.
The misunderstanding that others are unable to control themselves.
Many women and men have been trained by society to excuse bad behavior and self-blame.
This misconception is outdated, and debilitating to many victims. If this is you, you are not alone.
My invitation is to forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself for blaming yourself, your clothes, your state of mind, your location, your age, looks, your strength, or anything else that you are blaming for someone else’s behavior.
It wasn’t your fault.
A PERSON STORY:
A few years back I was assaulted. I had told the person I wasn’t interested. I had told him I was interested in someone else. I told him.
Yet, I went as a friend to an event and was drugged and raped.
An older woman close to me – blamed me for posting beautiful pictures. I had posted images of me in a gold dress; I had found for the event. As if any of this as an excuse to “take” my body and use it.
After this event I made a recovery walking myself through my Amazing You program and finding my center.
I made a Rape Kit to help survivors feel more understood as they walk through the first days of healing after an assault.
I also went into hiding.
I gained weight in order to not attract attention.
I stopped working with survivors and focused on self-development because I felt ashamed.
I stopped dressing to feel beautiful and slummed around.
I lived in fear.
And I fought to help myself.
I wished I had a mentor or therapist that could understand and help me live fully again. But there wasn’t one.
Over time with the help of a few great boyfriends, and coaches I healed. I reached out for help. I dove deeper into my work and got my degrees to further help survivors thrive again. To become the coach/therapist I needed.
MY CALLING TO HELP:
Over my 10 years as a coach/therapist and 20 years in wellness working with survivors; I have noticed people get stuck not knowing how to reconcile this deep and painful belief that somehow they were responsible for someone else’s actions against them.
IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT.
Now I am healthy. Stepping back into the full expression of myself in life and in work.
