For those who have suffered the pain and devastation of abuse, it can be extremely hard to confide in those around you. Memories may be too painful, riddled with unwarranted feelings of guilt, shame and anger that may be too devastating. It is all to common that victims of abuse carry the heavy weight of their memories and emotions alone, unable to share with another person for the fear of how it will affect them.
