How is forgiveness possible when you have been sexually abused?
This question is at the heart of true forgiveness. If you have been sexually abused, you have
much to forgive. You will never forget, but you must forgive. Lack of forgiveness will consume your life and drag
you deeper into despair; ultimately poisoning your life and the lives of your children. Forgiveness is a moment to moment
process, we must continually remind ourselves that we are seeking to lead a forgiving lifestyle. We are reminded of
our past in a myriad of ways throughout our days and nights; when pain arises we must consciously choose to let it go.
The choice is clear, forgive or live in continual pain. In the absence of forgiveness you allow the abuser to gain
even more control over your life and emotions. Forgiveness is the answer, it will set you free.
