Around the internet: Sexual abuse and forgiveness

“Being sexually abused means being wounded at every level and aspect of your being. That means that sometimes you will in fact feel healed—which is likely to then bring washing over you great waves of forgiveness and even compassion for your abuser. But later—could be a day later, could be a week, could be years—you may find a wave of an altogether different sort pulling you back out to sea, where you will again find yourself cold, lost, and feeling as if you’re sinking.”
