I’m a family scapegoat who survived from dysfunctional / toxic family, raised by abusive / narcissistic father and experienced childhood abuse : sexually, emotionally and psychologically.
It took me YEARS to figure out what happened to me and the so-called family. I was so confused – didn’t know what to do and how to get help for myself.
Though I eventually survive but carry many unspeakable pain / hurt. People see me as a normal introvert but deep down I have many invisible emotional / psychological scars that need to be addressed and healed.
Not mentioning dealing all the side-effects : such as self-doubts, shame and guilty during the healing journey.
So frustrated and fed up with all taboos and misconception from society. At the end the healing journey is so lonely and rough. I understand the challenges of adult survivors for childhood abuse and those who grew up from dysfunctional families.
This is a platform for adult survivors, or anyone who cares about unspeakable topics : child abuse, sexual, emotional, psychological abuses. We can learn, empower and support each other with love, wisdom and courage.
Let’s join hands to raise awareness of childhood, sexual, psychological and emotional abuses. Help to break taboos of toxic families/parents so no more dirty secrets.
