As abuse survivors and humans one thing we must all eventually face within ourself is the concept of God and the reason for our existence. Each of us face the fundamental question of “Why did God allow this to happen to me?” “Why didn’t God stop my abuser?” Those are just a few of the tough questions that a survivor may struggle with. I have yet to come to terms with this issue myself so you won’t find me preaching about it here.

So many times I hear about grace, the gift from God. I had no faith in God, in others, nor in myself. I realize I do not exist independent of the human race, though many times during depression I have found myself wanting to be less a part of it. Coming to terms with why I was put on this earth, and why abusers are allowed to abuse children, taking away my childhood, remains unanswered. For me these questions will never be answered, but slowly I am learning to move forward without the answers. Below are some links to pages that I feel that cover this topic much better than I can at this time. Please let me know if they are helpful to you by using the email link at the bottom of this page. Thank you.
