Helping Survivors and Victims Heal: Things Not to Say to Someone Recovering

I was physically, mentally, emotionally abused by my mother from the time I was 3. daily beatings, sometimes several times a day. with her hands or whatever was near. being attacked while sleeping. it ended when I was 19. I ended up punching her in the eye...and that stopped her. this page is EXACTLY what I tell people who try to act like they know better than me about abused people, yet they don't' know any but me, they aren't a clinical therapist...
today I was told by my own brother, who grew up with me but wasn't abused, to keep it to myself, his wife also said the same thing. they are trying to shame me for speaking out about the abuse. I gave them this link so they could read it and get a clue. the memory of the abuse is part of me. I am not ashamed, I did nothing wrong. I will not keep quiet. I will speak out, maybe some needs to hear my story to come to healing themselves. I forgive my mom, and I love her. but those memories are always with me.
