Session Two: Sharing Your Story
During this session, our goal is to help you get in touch with your own emotions.
An important first step is to journal your abortion story. Writing can unlock hidden memories, reveal details that you’ve forgotten, outline pain that you haven’t considered and simply help you understand how you ended up in an abortion clinic.
Some prefer to write in various ways – in a journal, poetically, artistically or making a recording or sharing with a trusted friend. Whatever way works best for you, recording your abortion experience is an important first step in healing.
Accountability is an important element in the healing process. Without it, our tendency is to stop when things get painful. An accountability partner can walk through the hard steps so that you are not alone.
Due to the need for secrecy after abortion, it could be that you are unable to share your abortion with others. The Ramah team is available to help you in processing these emotions. If there is no one in your life that you can communicate with, please feel free to share with our team. We are always here to help!
When you begin a journey like this you may experience deep memory recall. This can result in nightmares or hearing messages in your head that discourage you from moving forward in this healing.
Good hearted friends or loved ones can relay messages like, “It’s all in the past. Why bring it up now?” For many, these emotions are simply unavoidable and must be addressed.
Don’t let anyone discourage you from what God may have for you!
In order to begin to understand what happened to you during your abortion, it is recommended that you simply begin to record your story.
Unplanned pregnancy often results during deep family strife as one generation significantly impacts another.
The concept of looking at the pain of a past abortion can be overwhelming. While it is possible to receive immediate forgiveness for the confession of our sins, God’s purifying process may take a little bit longer.
God didn’t leave my heart after my abortion. He was always there. His message always called me to repent and sin no more.
Abortion changes everything, whether the mother or father knows it or not. It can be decided in panic and regretted forever.
The myth that God cannot forgive is an example of an abortion stronghold. A stronghold is defined as any type of thinking that is in contrary to the word of God.
Many women share about encountering angry protesters in front of the clinics where their abortions were performed.
