Abused kids often protect themselves by avoiding any risk.
Sexual abuse is an especially damaging act as an enormous betrayal of trust. 90% of sexual offenders are known to the child. That means that a trusting relationship turned dangerous. The stronger the initial trust, the more the damage.
And so they don’t risk trusting again. That makes sense until you realize what it costs them: mentoring, friendships, and jobs or family later in life.
And worse, because they can’t trust, they rarely tell anyone about their abuse.
