Four Daily Tips for Survivors of Chid Abuse

  1. Drink water when you're thirsty.
  2. Do not skip meals when you're clearly hungry.
  3. Allow yourself a bathroom break when you first feel the urge to go.
  4. Allow for 8 hours of sleep each night.

For many years, I denied myself the simplest of human needs. If I had chores to do, I worked until I completed them--to the detriment of my health.

One day a wise woman asked, "If the needs you had today were the needs of a child in your care, how would you say you cared for that child today? Did you give her a glass of water when she was thirsty? Did you feed her? Did you allow her to go to the bathroom, or become impatient with the interruption? Did you tuck her into bed at a decent hour?"

I thought it over . . . the truth was staggering. I made a decision then and there to take care of myself. And do you know it proved to be one of the hardest things I'd ever done? I had no idea this simple exercise would stir so many emotions. The very act of taking care of myself physically became my earliest steps toward emotional healing. God works through everything. Everything.

Care for yourself each day. You are a priceless gift from God. These four steps are simple, but not easy. I encourage you to take these steps and allow God to heal you in unexpected ways.

Ask yourself at the end of each day: If the needs I had today were the needs of a child in my care, how did I care for her today?
