Healing for Rape: A 9-Step Recovery Plan

anxious-black-and-white-blur-568027.jpg

Rape, the very sound of the word makes people feel uncomfortable. It’s the elephant in the room in many families, and somehow it’s always perceived as the victim’s fault. I’ve always believed that it’s the silence of the victims that have given predators and society the authority to treat rape victims the way they do. Silence is great for most things but NOT in cases of abuse; there should be an outcry. The identity of rape victims are concealed, and I can understand that, because no one wants anyone to know that they were raped no matter the circumstance, so we hide behind the alias while our assailants profess their innocence boldly. While the legal system intended to protect us by concealing us, it has also alienated us and given the advantage to the enemy. Remaining nameless and faceless has harmed us.

My grandmother asked me, why did I put my face on my first book, How I Escaped The Prison of Rape: The Journey To Total Freedom. This book tells the story of how I was molested as a child and raped as an adult. Her concern was that people would come back and point fingers at me, and I told her that it was necessary for me to put a face to the story. Putting my face to the shame the enemy once threatened to expose; was my way of telling hell, I won’t be bullied. The things you continue to hide you cannot be healed from.

Bullying Has To Stop! Maishayn Wilson Tells Us Why

US B-3

Even as a millennial, I too was bullied especially while in elementary, junior high and a small part of my high school careers. There were times I dreaded going to school. Children (people in general) can be mean or jealous. I remember trying to be so kind/nice to my bullies. Sometimes it worked. Others times it didn’t. I kept being myself. My parents prayed a lot for me. As well as I. I eventually became popular. I found my voice in gaining the courage to speak up for myself & others that were being bullied, but sometimes it wasn’t easy. A lot of the times those bullies are dealing/battling with their own demons and bring those types of behavioral attitudes to school, etc.

Often times (back then while in school), I would inform the teachers, coaches, and principal as to what was going on and they looked out for me (including some of my friends, they looked out for me too. 🥰). Let us continue to pray for the bully as we pray for those who are getting bullied aswell. Social media has made bullying so much worse, but I believe if we continue to take a stand and get more involved by speaking up on platforms such as this and within our own communities we can bring more awareness to this epidemic and save more lives one day at a time. With Jesus on our side, we are more than conquers! 🙏🏾 Amen!

This helps to promote thicker, younger-looking skin. Silica plays a major role in bone formation and density.
