About Love Always Prevails

Hello everyone. I decided to create a website where people can go to get support in overcoming traumatic experiences, particularly sexual abuse and sexual assault. Often when traumatic experiences occur, I just like many other’s go through or have gone through a range of emotions from shock to fear to anger to unforgiveness. All these emotions can lead to depression and anxiety which is often the result of unresolved emotional trauma.

Did you know that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused by the age of 18?

1 out of every 6 American Women has been a victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).

According to the U.S. Department Justice National Crime Victimization Study (2009-2013). There is an average of 293,066  victims (age 12 or older) of rape and sexual assault each year.  The majority of rapes are unreported (32% reported, 68% not reported).

Everyone’s traumatic experience is unique and varies according to the individual and the type of trauma. Therefore, the aim of LoveAlwaysPrevails is to encourage everyone to be more open about our traumatic experiences and encourage others who might need support. It is with great hope that you find peace and achieve greater emotional health.

    Most go unreported because there is such a stigma still attached. Generally the thought is what did she do, how was she dressed…. when the shame is never in the victim…it’s with the abuser…not to mention as a child and you try and tell an adult your not always believed either…
