Growing up with violence
While it is not uncommon to experience or be exposed to domestic and sexual violence, the violent behaviors you grew up with were not okay. The impacts of domestic and sexual violence are vast and varied. It can be especially challenging for people who grew up with the threat of violence and never felt safe to talk about the abuse. What happened to you when you were young was not your fault. You deserve the space to process your experiences and the opportunity to live a life free from violence.
