SORT BY Relevancy
I am here for you
Thursday is dedicated to survivors to call in and let us all know how they are helping other fellow survivors. Survivors, at any stage of healing can be a tremendous help to fellow survivors. It does not have to be on a grand scale. You can call into a blogtalk radio show and just having your name present can let survivors know that they are not alone. You can visit a non-profit that deals with survivors of child sexual abuse and volunteer at an event or visit their web page. Visiting web pages gives them a count on how many visits and that helps with applying for grants. Also, leave a testimony. You may believe that your story is not that interesting, but it is to someone who has not found the courage to break their silence and sees that there is someone who has the same story as they do. Buy a t-shirt or a book. It is great healing when you help others.
Child safety education is one of the ways we can prevent child sex exploitation. Join us in the battle.
Speaking the truth to your family.
Telling your family that you were molested as a child is about the hardest part of breaking your silence. Many of us were molested by a family member who is respected and loved by most. You will begin to stack the reasons and excuses as to why you can’t or shouldn’t tell your family in your head and it sounds very reasonable in your head, but you know that it has to be done.
Breaking your silence to someone you trust is just opening the old infected wound and letting the poison out, but as adults we all know that our wound is not going to truly heal if we don’t let the doctor cut it open and clean it out completely. We are adults that were traumatized as children. We know better now. We are not little boys and girls and we have to set the example for others and show ourselves that we deserve being healthy and getting healing. We have to refuse to allow our molesters have power over us another day! You have to stop looking over your shoulder and walking on egg shells. This is what happened and it was not your fault and it is time to experience your life as it should be!
Wednesday is dedicated to survivors to call in and let us all know how they are seeking their support. How are they making the effort to find a support group, volunteer at a non-profit, researching or professional counseling? It is hard work learning how to find your healing and it takes time to learn how to live in your new life. Living in healing is something very new to survivors who have broken their silence and it takes a while to get a rhythm and security in their daily walk.

Tonight's special guest is Lisa Dawn Wilkins from North Platte, Nebraska, a returning NAASCA family member. A survivor of severe childhood sexual and physical abuse, her adult life was just as disastrous and painful. Now she's a foster parent and author of a new book, "Abuse The Darkness Within," expected out soon. She runs a popular NAASCA associated Facebook Community of the same name. There's also a companion Facebook Group for sharing. Lisa works to bring about awareness and to put an end to child abuse and domestic violence. "Medication to me is not the answer," Lisa says. "I healed and continue to heal by choosing to help others and challenge my fear one step at a time. I had several diagnoses through out my life and after studying them I knew that was not what I had. I knew what took me years to get to would take me years to come out of." She goes on, "I suffered from circumstances, from things that happen to me. The psychologist try to push medication. But look at me. I refused and I am a productive citizen. We can choose to let them win or we can choose to win." Determined to succeed, Lisa went her own way. "I walked away from everyone and everything I knew my whole life and I put up a no contact order. I started over and my life has improved everyday their away. I still love them but I don't desire their approval or love any longer." Lisa concludes, "I now share my story to bring awareness to what is real, what I lived through and what I do to over come."

Monday - Release YOUR Pain
Let Go of YOUR Suffering
Break YOUR Silence
Monday’s show is dedicated to survivors who need to take that one step and reveal the truth. Please don’t think of this special step as being exposed to the world and fearing the worst from people if you tell us what happened to you as a child, but instead know that you have been traumatized enough. You never did anything wrong. You deserve and should demand that this load of crap that has been dumped on you be cleaned off of you and out of you!! This trauma is no longer yours!! Take your poisonous secret, put it in a bag and throw it in the trash. It is out, gone and never to return because you can’t be a victim ever again!!! He no longer has that power over you!!
It is very true that the damage that he or she has caused is very real and you probably feel tore up from the floor up, but that is just it! You are now able to heal. You have stopped the damage and the profuse bleeding and the painful recovery begins. The healing path is stretched as far as your eyes can see and in fact, the ending is never seen by our eyes, but the path is a different path. It is a life being surrounded by people who support us and we seek healthy people and make healthier choices.
Welcome! And it all begins with This One Step.
