Sex abuse is the forcing of undesired sexual behavior by one person upon another, and there is child sex abuse where an adult or older adolescent uses a child for sexual stimulation. So many children across the world face sexual abuse everyday at a very young age. Most adults were sexually abused at a very young age or even later in their life too. The act of abusing one sexually (whether a child or an adult), is dehumanizing. This is because every human has a right over their body and violating this right should be treated the same as murder. The most terrible of it all is abusing a child who is yet to fully develop emotionally, mentally and physically. I personally believe that any one that sexually abuses a child or adult should, in addition to any punishment being meted out, be sent to a rehabilitation facility or made to see a therapist because the act generally does not come from a normal, stable human mind.
The victims of sex abuse end up bearing the stigma for the entirety of their lives (At least I can testify to that), and not only are they stigmatized emotionally, for some, it generally affects their turn out in life. At least one in every three prostitutes faced sexual abuse, some other victims cannot hold a single relationship at a time and for others, it interprets as a complete hatred for the sexes that abused them.
Since the effects of being sexually abused cannot be underestimated, and one has to break-free from every form limitation to become the best they can be, it all results to how to live past it. One of the major things is admitting to yourself that it is affecting you.This is because sometimes denial of one’s emotion puts up a cloud over the person’s mind and no matter the help anyway, the person is oblivious to and unaffected by it. It is simply searching deep inside you and being truthful to you. After that, then you have to forgive the person that molested you. Forgiveness is not for the person, it is for YOU! To forgive is a cleansing to your soul, it purges you of every bitterness and it is actually the bitterness against the sexual abuser that holds you back. Forgiving the person that abused you frees your spirit, soul and this leads to a liberation of your entire body into being the best you can be.
Choose today to forgive, because doing so, you can then put it in your past as your past and live in your present to improve your future. One thing you should never forget is NO HUMAN BEING HAS ANY RIGHT TO RUIN YOU BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY DID TO YOU, IF YOU ALLOW IT, THEN YOU GIVE OVER THE ENTIRE POWER OF YOUR EXISTENCE TO THEM AND PLEASE, DON’T DO THAT!
