A journey to healing from complex trauma.

I fucking hate the way church people minimize abuse.

I try to avoid the Royal Commission, as it is so triggering and upsetting. But, Cardinal Pell is all over the news at the moment.

It is so fucking typical of church people to minimize and invalidate their abusive actions. ‘Mistakes were made’. FFS. It wasn’t ‘mistakes’ it was ongoing severe abuse. Denying child sexual abuse by the paedophiles they were enabling and protecting. Treating the victims in a disgusting manner. For decades. That wasn’t a fucking mistake – it was deliberate, intentional, planned and cause massive devastating suffering to all the victims and their families.

This is the one of the reasons, they treated the victims so badly and protected the paedophiles….. and this is abuse – right there in this sentence. Emotional, mental, psychological and spiritual abuse…. for decades.

Abuse ^ from paedophiles and their enablers.

 

Minimizing and invalidation is abuse in itself. Denying it, to protect the church. Considering the Bible speaks of being truthful, they are fucking failing miserably in that. Still.

I’ve noticed a lot of church people choose minimizing as a way to deal with church abusers. My counsellor does it. She minimizes abuse by church people to ‘funny thinking’. It’s not fucking funny thinking, it’s abuse. Mental, emotional & spiritual abuse to minimize the suffering church people inflict on victims.

I am so fucking over church people minimizing abuse.

They wouldn’t know the truth, if it got up and smacked them across the face.

And with their abuse, they have no conscience, no remorse, no empathy, no guilt, no shame.

I am a survivor of complex and multiple trauma and abuse, who at the age of 40, began my healing journey. I am using my journey to recovery and healing, to help others, to help survivors feel less alone, validated, encouraged and to enable others to understand themselves more. Complex trauma, particularly from severe, prolonged childhood abuse, is profoundly life changing. Complex trauma produces complex adults. The journey to recovery is a painful, often lonely, emotional daily challenge and it is my aim to encourage others in their daily battle.
