Invisible Scars – Message from Tulir

“Violation is determined by your experience as a child—your body, your feelings, your spirit. The precise physical acts are not always the most damaging aspect of abuse. Although forcible rape is excruciating to a small child, many kinds of sexual abuse are not physically painful. They do not leave visible scars. Some abuse is not even physical.” The Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass and Laura Davis
