Healing the Whole: Diary of an Incest Survivor (Wo

€9.50
As more memories surfaced, more shame began to emerge.... By writing, I could put some distance between myself and my shame without stopping the process.... As I continued to heal and share my writing with other incest survivors, I was encouraged, supported, and validated by the notion that maybe my writing could help others. I had been keeping a detailed journal for several years and had no prior thoughts of ever publishing it or becoming a writer. Although there were some books on incest that described the process, I had not come across one that revealed those many intimate steps a survivor would need to take, such as walking through the feelings of shame convinced that you are going to die, or the terror of discovering one's sexual identity that is free from abuse. It was then I decided I would publish my journal and share my daily triumphs and agonies.
