It’s never easy to talk about sexual abuse, especially when it happens to a young child at the hands of a family member. But, I believe that the only way to deal with thisÂ “epidemicâ€ is to confront it head on with the stories of survivors and expert guidance that offers hope.
That’s why I sat down with Arlene, and what she revealed left me speechless.Â Her story is at times raw, her scars painful. Abused as a child, her self-worth was left in shambles, and what she defined as love only resulted in severalÂ troubled marriages.
I hope this video will open your eyes about sexual abuse, its lasting impact, and the power of healing.
