  2. Hi @nordic.panda a big warm welcome to AS This is one of the commonest feelings that abuse survivors seem to have, justifying their experiences as abuse. You are certainly not alone with those thoughts. There are many (me included) who feel that what they went through when compared to others, isn't really worth mentioning. I struggled with this for quite some time. My experiences involved physical abuse from my auntie, with the excuse that it was punishment for my sins so that God would forgive me. Painful and humiliating as those punishments were, like yourself, I never felt my life was in danger at any time. But that doesn't lessen the impact, either at the time or in the years since. It is all relative to the receiver. There is no sliding scale when it comes to abuse, its how it makes you feel that is important and you are just as worthy of care, understanding and support as anyone. I know you will find that here. Good thoughts and blessings to you.

  14. Hi Kady, welcome to AS. I think you will soon find by coming here that there are many others who have the same doubts, fears, emotions and concerns as you do. Those feelings that you have of anger, uncertainty, guilt and shame will be recognisable to a lot of others here including me. Just take things slowly, its step by step from here. I think if your partner truly loves you then he will understand if you decide to tell him. But just see how you feel and don't be pressured into doing anything if you are not sure. There is always someone here ready to listen. I am so pleased that you have the Lord back in your life and hope His presence can bring comfort and guidance to you. Stay strong x
  15. Hi TuxedoCat I'm glad that you found us and decided to join us. It is a long road that we are on but at least you are walking it with us now. Good thoughts and blessings.
