It may have been just one second, one minute, one hour or one day but a life was forever changed. The lingering effects of childhood sexual abuse or of sexual assault last a lifetime. Whether it's a mother triggered by the cries of her newborn, a faint whiff of a scent that brings back the trauma of that moment, or a major life-event plagued by anxiety or depression, survivors of sexual trauma continuously face a deep-seeded pain.
But, that does not have to be without hope. It does not mean they are forever chained to despair.
“Hope is the thing with feathers/That perches in the soul/And sings the tune without the words/And never stops at all.” ― Emily Dickinson
