Today I’m posting a helpful checklist for sexual abuse survivors about the effects of sexual abuse on your life today. (Whew, that was a long sentence). Find the checklist at Deeper Church.
Here’s a snippet:
In Your Sexual Relationship:
• You are afraid to have sex. In fact, if sex were suddenly erased from planet earth, you would throw a party.
• You can’t have sex—it hurts or it doesn’t work right.
• You feel guilty for not being “enough” for your spouse, but have no idea how to heal in this area enough to want sex. It’s more duty than joy.
• You resent your spouse for needing sex.
