Why the Adoptee Must Write About Abuse
For anyone coming to terms with childhood abuse, injustice
and psychological manipulation writing it down helps in many ways. Writing the incidents of abuse on paper makes it real, readable and the perpetrator did not entirely get away with it
if someone else reads it. The reader's feelings are validations of empathy and justice for the cruelty suffered by an innocent trusting child long ago. The Abuser is guilty and a bad person in
the mind of the reader, as the reader's empathy is the justice.
The abused must document and remember so this kind of abuse
will not be forgotten. Talking about abuse and being abused is a way to make sense of the act by verbalizing it to someone who cares, a friend, family member (not the abuser) and counselor or therapist. Talking and writing about your abuse is a mentally healthy way to digest and introduce the emotions to the self for the first time. As abused children are not allowed to discuss or speak about anything the parents have done will be denied and you will be called a liar, just like when you were a kid. The
past can not leave you until you emotionally recognize and mentally digest what has occurred in the past. Then you can get beyond but for some there is a reason for the childhood problem not to leave your short term memory. Be kind to yourself and give help to that helpless child inside you.
