My name is Sarah and I’m a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and partner rape. I am doing my best to improve my life and find peace. I currently live and work in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. I am 37 years old.
I am the little one in the pic above. This was taken right around the time that my abuse started. I wanted to put this picture up instead of my current pic because it reminds me that I was just a child and not responsible for what happened to me. There is a lot of shame and guilt that goes along with being a survivor and I am on a personal quest to let go of that feeling.
My hope is that by sharing my experiences with you and my healing journey, there is a better understanding in the world about what happens to people like me and what I go through. Maybe there will be some eyes opened, some minds broadened, and some empathy/understanding for other survivors. I hope that the survivors that read my blog and watch my vlogs can feel a sense of them not being alone or the only one that feels the way they do, they are not crazy, and someone cares about them. I care.
Please know that I am not speaking for all survivors and can only answer questions based on my own feelings and experiences. Each survivor is unique as well as their experience and how they are doing. Everyone handles things in their own time and that’s ok. I welcome respectful questions and am happy to answer them.
Where else can you find me?
