You MUST WATCH This One Until The End


Today's video is going to be a little different. At U Grow Girl we think it's super important to sometimes take a break from the heavy stuff and enjoy a little laugh. I came across this video the other day and it made me chuckle, so I'm posting this right here for you in the hopes it might make you smile today too.

What survivors of Child Sexual Abuse need to know before they disclose. 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

Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse That Never Tell May Have One Thing In Common.


In this video, I share with you my story of what brought me to the point where I was ready to disclose to my family the sexual abuse I endured as a child. I had every intention of taking this secret to the grave, so what changed my mind?


If you are a Survivor and are struggling with the decision to disclose, or if you are a Survivor who has already disclosed and now you are dealing with the aftermath, then this video is for you.
