This channel is dedicated to all those brave fellow 'adult survivors of child sexual abuse'. You are not alone out there, you are believed and supported in finding your voice & handing the shame back to the abusers - where it belongs. Each week I will add another interview with a 'fellow survivor' to help support our community in finding their way to truth and freedom, which only real truth can bring. Please feel free to reach out if you would also like to be a guest on the show. About Me: I too am a survivor of child sexual abuse spanning sixteen years. I have written a book called On Angels' Wings - My Flight from Trauma to Grace. I also blog monthly on https://www.gloriamasters.com/blog/ Check out my youtube channel: Gloria Masters - Handing the Shame Back..

It can be really challenging to accept the situation we find ourselves in.
None of it is easy, and for us #csa survivors, even more so.
However if we accept a specific situation as though we had chosen it, we may just find a way through more peacefully and with hope.
After all, how do you know you're where you should be?
Because you're there.
Love and light to all of you.
Till next time.
Sometimes we have no idea of the impact we have on others, or even the impact they have on us. We do know the only thing we can control is how we behave towards others, and that can be challenging when we are struggling ourselves.
In this blog I offer some quick tips that may help stop behaviour we know we will regret later.
Have a listen, and see if any of it feels comfortable for you.

My interview with Madeleine is both heartbreaking and inspiring. She believes we are more than just the sum of what has happened to us, and that true forgiveness takes genuine effort. It is the ultimate act of courage.

Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con.
