Abuse leaves us with plenty of things to process: broken home, ruined childhood, years lost to DV, missed opportunities - acknowledging it is painful, but processing our trauma helps us move forward.
Healing Shame & Guilt
Emotions aren't always rational, and many of us do feel ashamed and embarrassed of having been abused. Speaking of it works better than sweeping it under the rug. You're not alone.
Abuse wasn't fair, we didn't deserve it, and yet are stuck with the consequences for life. Feel free to voice how you really feel about having been violated; any language is welcome.
Writing letters to those who abused you is a therapeutic exercise: it helps to sort through your thoughts and feelings.
