Betrayal trauma tends to cause a person to feel as if they're merely moving through life, zombie-like. The world is passing them by. Everyone else seems to be having fun, but they're not.
Fun is too dangerous. Too much risk. Unsafe.
At least this has been my experience. I feel like I’ve been buried for a long time, cut off from the rest of the word -- and cut off from myself.
But I can now -- finally -- hear God calling. Talitha Cumi.

Now is the time for healing and renewal from the ravages of trauma and domestic abuse.
I'm Jenny duBay, a domestic abuse survivor and now advocate. My degree is in Christian theology with a concentration on spiritual direction, and my vocational emphasis is on helping those who have suffered from domestic abuse to heal and reclaim their true selves.
