I did a help line post for a mental health crisis but this one is also very close to my heart as being a sexual abuse survivor myself, I wanted to do a separate post for help lines for people who are facing sexual abuse and who are survivors of sexual abuse.
I’m not a trained professional or a councillor but I can listen and listening is the most important skill and that can help people by listening and being non-judgemental towards them.

My aim is to help people not just help myself. My aim is to help people talk and get the help they need and get the right punishment for the abusers as my abuser just got a slap on the wrist and told not to go near me again.
I’m a sexual abuse survivor, that person won’t bring me down. I was a young vulnerable person when that happened to me, but I can’t ever forget what he sent me and what he asked me it’s planted in my brain and I’m scared when I see him in community still and was so close to my family and friends. He’s ruined the little trust I had. It’s made me stronger and I’m determined to help people with any situation. I still get the flashbacks and shaking when I’m around something I’m uncomfortable.
I believe you. I have love for you. If I could I would hug you and let you get all the emotion out. Here’s a virtual hug and I’m always here.
If you don’t feel like talking to yet, I’ll always be here and I’ll help out any way I can. You aren’t alone.
Just so you know, it’s okay not to be okay you know, even the happiest person in the universe has their bad days. You can get through this dark hole. I believe in you.
You are loved. You are worth the fight. You are more than your illnesses, you can fight this I believe in you. You are flawless. You are fabulous. You aren’t alone. You are amazing and I’m proud of you all.
You can beat these thoughts. I believe in you. I will always be there for you even if it’s on the internet or email or even in person one day. You are loved. You are needed in this world because you are YOU. You are bad ass for battling mental illness daily. I care about every single one of you. You are more than enough. You don’t need to please anyone else.
God Bless x
