I had dinner with a friend tonight who is an abuse survivor, and she was mentioning to me that she feel uncomfortable trying to get support from a group for people who were sexually abused, because what happened to her was not "as bad" as what it could have been. I have heard this from other friends who were sexually abused as well. I know that I have felt this way in the past too, but feel more able to own up to just how crappy it was for me now that I am in less denial about it. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this feeling, and how you dealt with it, and also do you have any suggestions for ways to approach this when other people bring it up?
