What Not to Say to A Childhood Abuse Survivor
Stop living in the past.
You need to forgive
Your not over that already?
It wasn’t that bad.
It only happened once.
You can’t let that affect you.
Are you sure you were abused? Maybe you can’t handle sexual intimacy because you are with the wrong person.
Maybe you should get on medication (like just get on meds and you’ll be okay, or you need meds because you feel too much or you need to get your emotions under control) Meds can be very helpful but not when the suggestion is used to make someone else less uncomfortable with your emotions.
You are too sensitive.
You sure that happened? Maybe you are confused.
I doubt that’s what happened.
You should really keep that to yourself.
