Understanding the Effects of Old Abuse and How to Conquer It |

Old abuse brought back to life. Most people don’t realize the full impact of an abusive situation when they are in the middle of it. This is especially true when the abuse occurs while the victim is a child. Children have a unique ability to bury difficult situations, hide from harmful people or environments, and discount or disregard their hurt. As adults, this can create a far more problematic effect because of the tendency life experiences have to build off of each other. A negative experience coupled with too much time evading the original issue built on top of it can result in an almost volcanic emotional response. Adults who hear about or personally witness children experiencing the same level of abuse they did usually react protectively as they simultaneously become aware of the severity of how they were mistreated. This in turn brings the maltreatment to the surface with greater emotional reactions than expected.
