In this week's episode, D.J. talks with a friend and colleague, Liz, who reached out to D.J. for help sharing her story of what it was like to be a sexual assault survivor while being in a relationship. Liz talks about an important topic we need to talk more about. Even in a relationship, you have the right to say 'no' or 'not yet' and have your boundaries respected. When that doesn't happen, shame, fear, guilt and anger can destroy you from the inside out. Liz opens up about her self-care practices which help her heal from past abuse.
Hosted by D.J. Burr - a Seattle psychotherapist and author of I Just Wanted Love: Recovery of a Codependent, Sex and Love Addict.
Each episode of Journey On features real life accounts of sexual abuse and assault. You may be triggered by what you hear. I advise self-care tools; reaching out to a friend, seeing your therapist, picking a new time to listen to the show, or even listening with a group of friends. Take care of yourself first.
