In 2017, we saw a long list of powerful men accused of sexual assault. It was a shock to see men who we all view as influential be a center of controversy. To make matter worse, our nation’s president was part of this list.
But at the end of the day it’s not about these men, it is about the victims who have to live the pain inflicted on them by these men. Victims of abuse both emotional and physical abuse have serious lasting affects. In fact, according to, Time Magazine, emotional abuse can leave victims prone to depression, moodiness, and extreme or dulled responsiveness. Working in the human service field, I have seen first hand, I have seen victims of sexual assault experience these same things as well as post-traumatic stress disorder and suffered flashbacks of the event. The Simplyflo blog will be sharing the stories of victims of abuse on the blog as a way of bringing attention to the issue, and allowing victims to continue the healing process through sharing their stories.
