What It's ACTUALLY Like To Disclose Your Child Sexual Abuse | My Personal Story

Today is the day I talk about what it was like to disclose to my family that I was a survivor. This wasn't an easy video to create because it brought me back to a moment in time that was extremely painful for both family and myself, but I knew I had to make it anyway, and here is why... I was lucky, I had been blessed with an amazing therapist that helped me navigate this life-changing moment. She prepared me for things I didn't even know I needed to be prepared for, and she helped me make the transition from "Taking It To The Grave" to "Me Too".

In this video, I share with you all the preparation that took place prior to my "Me Too" moment. If you are considering disclosing your own abuse, you will want to think about all of the "What If's" that could potentially arise so you are prepared. Join me as I take you back to this moment in time and open my heart and my life in the hopes to shed light on what "Me Too" is really like for a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

With Love & Gratitude, Crystal Wood

Are you a survivor of child sexual abuse who has never disclosed? If so chances are you have thought about it. My intention with this video series (link in the comments below) is to shed light on what it’s actually like to disclose your abuse and prepare you for what might come during and after your #Metoo moment.

Hypervigilance Examples - Recovering From Childhood Sexual Abuse.

Today I show you how developing Hypervigilance from my childhood trauma has affected my feeling of safety in the world around me. You will get an inside view of how my struggle with Hpervigilance has affected my adult life.

It's time to stop being ashamed of the behaviors we adopted as children in order to survive.

My hope is that by the end of this video regardless of what survival behavior you struggle with, you will find hope in knowing there is a way through this, change is possible, and it all starts with you today.

With Love & Gratitude, Crystal Wood
