Embracing Independence as a Survivor of Child Abuse
By Kylee Johnson

“Our first and last love is self-love,” wrote New York writer Christian Nevell Bovee, indicating the importance of a strong sense of self-worth and independence.

If you are a survivor of child abuse, how can you assert your independence while continuing to form important bonds with others?
