After overcoming the challenges associated with First Grade and feeling a positive sense of accomplishment, life seemed to be back to normal until something entirely wrong happened. My Fourth Grade teacher who was male, did something so despicable and and so terrible, that it has negatively affected my entire life. Without describing details, I will say that this continued and went on for the entirety of the school year.
My heart has been permanently changed and has connected to this cause that affects so many children.
Childhood Sexual Abuse or Trauma is not just for a period of time and children do not move on to become what is considered by traditional standards, normal adults. Children move on to enter into abusive relationships, drug or alcohol addiction, depression, or other psychologically debilitating issues that create a sense of great loss or trauma. Many people in today's fast-paced world minimize the long-term effects of Childhood Sexual Abuse or Trauma and what that looks like or feels like as an adult.
I am here to tell you that there is nothing minimal about the word ABUSE regardless of the age, and that you never "outgrow" it you only learn how to "overcome" it. I have made it my mission to provide support to survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse or Trauma, whether it be emotional of financial, through my nonprofit organization; CREATE IMPACT! Create Impact is a 501(c)3 organization as defined by the Internal Revenue Service and any donations made to support this cause will be considered a tax-deductible donation.
