Home Again

This blog was written by Adults Sexually Abused by Priests (ASAP)

I read something last week from a reader who said that the abuse we have been through in our lives and the subsequent pain, isolation, loneliness and emotional fallout we experienced as a result of that has given us in a sense, more strength or experience than perhaps the average person going through this lockdown due to the Corona virus. And that experience may allow us to be able to help others having a difficult time right now.

Give Me Shelter

I’m not going to lie. Quarantine is beginning to get to me. I consider myself lucky, though. If I look back over my life, now is probably the best time for this to happen. To be stuck inside, that is. I have no pressing things to get done at work, I am not a teenager wanting to escape being stuck with my parents, nor do I have teenagers blasting music and giving me sullen looks in passing. I have really no place I need to be and time to do the things I always said I’d do when I got the time.

When The Shark Bites

When you have been abused by someone, there is a good chance that you won’t be believed. Unless you have a broken jaw or get a rape test done, someone who turns from Dr. Jeckell to Mr. Hyde once the door is closed behind you, may have the rest of the world fooled.

"Calm in Crisis" - A Webinar Resource for Survivors

Recently I heard someone discuss about how his abuse did not prevent him from maintaining his strong faith in the Lord and his belief that not all priests are bad and that forgiveness is the key to peace.

Join us for these webinars in April + A training opportunity from D2l

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, a great opportunity to learn more about issues that affect children and what you can do to not only help prevent future cases of child abuse but also support survivors of abuse in all its forms.

Recognition For A Job Well Done

It is always great to be recognized for doing an exceptional job because exceptional jobs require exceptional effort, commitment and time. When those exceptional acts benefit many people, that recognition is shared with all those who are affected. It is truly a cause for a celebration!

Just For Men

This blog was written by Adults Sexually Abused by Priests (ASAP)

It’s difficult for an adult to admit that they have been conned. We know not to give out our personal information on the phone or worry about scams that we have heard of….such as the grandchild who calls out of the blue and needs money because they’ve been in an accident. People who are generous, kind-hearted, and honest tend to be more naïve when it comes to someone trying to pull something over on them because they themselves would not do that to someone.
