As survivors, we sometimes feel annoyed or embarrassed, we even feel shame around the fact that someone had chosen to hurt us. In life, we can often not control what happens, especially not what other people do to us. We can control our reaction and even if we have been feeling unwell for a long time, with a little help, we can make a change to get better.
