Even though the victims don't ask to be abused, they're left with guilt and shame for ages and as a result, insecurity, self-loathing, self-doubt and lack of self-confidence. Often enough their self-esteem is low. This is the same for emotional, physical and sexual abuse. It is due to their abuse, their inability to defend themselves, probably lack of support in case they confided in anyone and most importantly, the abuse who is often an adult instilling that the victim asked for it!
Every victim has problem trusting anyone, accepting anyone's help or letting anyone in ... trust me, I know .. They make changes to their life based on their past and often, end up with disruptive habits.
This book answers several questions those survivors have well into adulthood and those answers are given from Bible or based on Bible. I like that there's a question for each day and the readers can read it as they go ... one for each day. This is a great guide for survivors, counselors, psychologists and individuals who are dealing with abused victims - friends, spouse, partners, siblings, etc.
