Join in as we navigate what it means to take healing from sexual abuse “at your own pace.”

Taking trauma at your own pace can seem like an abstract concept if you’re used to constantly overloaded. Healing at the best pace for you depending on where you are in life can prevent things like burnout, which can ripple into other places of your life. When you’re first starting out, it might feel like opening a spring-loaded box that you’ve spent so many years trying to keep closed. This is why it’s important to take your journey in small intervals, in doses that are best for you in the current lifestyle that you live.

If you are in danger of hurting yourself or someone else, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-8255 or RAINN's hotline 1-800-656-4673. There are also numerous resources on the website that include online chat hotlines. You are not alone.

I am not a trained therapist or counselor. This is a free resource using literature and nonprofit resources available online, dedicated to a community of survivors. If you are able, finding therapy or counseling can be a valuable component to healing from sexual assault/abuse.
