November 15, 2002, Newsletter Issue #53: Healing Instincts

Tip of the Week

Survivors often have very good instincts about what they need to do to heal. What seems like a dynsfuction can actually be a very sound healing strategy whether chosen consciously or unconsciously.

For many survivors, avoiding sex may be a very important, choice-affirming, decision.

To heal sexually you must learn to say no to unwanted sex. It is important to make a commitment to yourself that you will never again grit your teeth and endure it when you really donīt want sex. Every time you have sex when you genuinely donīt want to, you add another layer of abuse, repeat the pattern of victimization, and thus delay your healing.
