Turning Emotional Pain Into Helping Others

And Sew it Begins—The Intricate Pattern of Incest  is author Debbie Roxborough’s personal story of surviving sexual abuse that offers guidance and encouragement to others who also suffered childhood abuse.  Ms. Roxborough is an extremely compelling author, as she is open, non-judgmental, very intelligent, and yes, funny.  She sees the irony of life and has learned to laugh at it.  After telling about surviving extremely painful experiences, she tells of getting very angry with a person’s pettiness.  I thought to myself, she has survived a war but is upset over a mosquito!  She writes with her mind as well as her heart, and I believe that her sense of humor and her deep insights helped her tremendously in her own recovery.     

In reading the book, it becomes clear that Ms. Roxborough is a special person.  She is extremely likeable and the reader is engaged right away.  She is open about her own experience in making the point that childhood abuse causes dysfunction, something survivors often do not put together, because, after all, the only childhood one has is one’s own.  She understands psychological principles and has compassion for herself and others.  Perhaps what comes through in her writing is that her intelligence is no more important than her big heart.  She does not spell everything out, but shows it in her writing, that she is not judgmental of herself (as she shouldn’t be but how many people can say that?) or others.  A very ethical and loving person comes through, and in reading about events of her past, it is like watching a caterpillar emerge into a butterfly.  She does not SAY that others can do what she did; she teaches by example self-respect, respect for others, and respect for the truth.  Her stance of being truly non-judgemental is a lesson in mindfulness; she tells of her own dysfunctional behavior in the past in as neutral a tone as the outstanding things she does now, such as leading a support group for survivors.  

As a psychologist, I know that many people are helped and inspired by true accounts of others.  I think of the many clients I have had who have asked me how they can be “normal” when they have done “crazy” things.  I will from now on refer them to Ms. Roxborough’s book, and tell them that they can not only be normal, but pretty terrific.  It is what she does not explain or spell out that teaches, encouraging the analytical ability of her readers.  Ms. Roxborough just being herself is what she has shared with all in her book.  The emotional courage and honesty in this book will inspire all who read it, and they will see that honesty, openness, humor, and dignity produce wonderful results.
