When a child is being abused by a sibling or family member in their immediate family and their family denies it because they love the accused too much too believe that the abuse is possible. Or sometimes the adults realize it might be true but are too scared to face it and would rather disassociate from it as well because it’s easier to pretend it never happened and silence the child’s pleas for help. What happens to these children. They oftentimes will disassociate to survive and learn to survive despite the abuse until someone is either caught or they grow up being deeply broken but sometimes not totally knowing why.
This is heart breaking but similar things are happening not just with survivors of sexual abuse but also ritual and mind control abuse and it doesn’t just happen in families but in our communities and church communities at large.
