Do not let your child suffer in silence!


Do not let your child suffer in silence!

A child may be reluctant to speak up about the abuse they are experiencing because they assume it is merely a temporary problem that will be resolved soon. The youngster may believe they are being punished for something or that the abuse is a normal part of life, and they are simply waiting for it to end.

Many people choose to keep silent about incidents of abuse for years, if not decades. There are a variety of reasons why people choose to remain silent. They may be afraid of retaliation from their abuser. They may be afraid of not being believed. Alternatively, they could be attempting to safeguard others from suffering the same fate.

Children, for example, are usually dependent on others and thus unable to protect themselves or remove themselves from their abusive environment, whether it be their school, neighbourhood, family, or all of it.

Sharing helps to reduce:

Hypervigilance, intrusive thoughts, flashbacks and some other symptoms and mental health issues. Flashbacks can be triggered by a variety of triggers, such as ongoing adult abuse, talking to someone else about your abusive memories, or learning about other people's abusive experiences.

Why do people stay silent?

People who have been abused are often scared to speak up about their experiences for fear of what may happen if they do. The anxieties are sometimes overblown, but they are frequently very real.

Many victims of abuse absorb the blame and responsibility for the abuse, believing it was their fault instinctively or intentionally. To put it another way, they earned it to some extent. Furthermore, many victims, such as those who have been sexually abused, feel dirty, violated, broken, flawed, unworthy of love, empathy, or even existence.

So much of what should be publicly labelled abuse has become acceptable in our society. Narcissistic behaviour is accepted as competition or strong self-esteem, physical abuse of children as discipline, neglect as character building, intimidation as assertiveness, triangulation as seeking support, character assassination as revealing the truth, bullying as just kidding, and so on.

Always speak up and do not be afraid!

Many people can relate to abuse and trauma, at least to some extent. However, talking about it and, in particular, seeking justice, can be difficult and difficult.

We live in a shattered culture where abuse is normalised, minimised, or rejected, and abuse victims are alienated, betrayed, or afraid of the consequences of their just, heroic, and necessary actions. Even people who are supposed to protect and help us, such as parents, family members, and therapists, aggravate the problem, making us feel even more alone and deceived.

But never let your fears invade your thoughts or actions. Always speak up and be confident that the world around you will support you! Of course, there might be some people who always blame the victim, but pretend like you never heard them and focus on the ones who genuinely care for you!

To further give you confidence, you can read this Self- healing autobiography written by author Saint Andrews. It is called Houston Has a Problem! Which represents Child Abuse issues and its solutions.
