2-Year Blog Anniversary: A Heartfelt Thanks to Readers… and Some News

Dear readers,

Two years ago today, The Invisible Scar was launched.

For some time, I had been wanting to write a blog post on my personal site to raise awareness of emotional child abuse, but I had too much to say, too much information kicking around my head, too much of a desire to just write one post.

After consulting a few esteemed friends (and praying a whole lot), I wrote a series of blog posts about emotional child abuse then published them on the newly launched The Invisible Scar.

Now, The Invisible Scar receives a staggering amount of views per month and myriad comments.

So, it seems that my hope for The Invisible Scar to be a good, safe place for raising awareness of emotional child abuse and its effects on adult survivors is coming to fruition.

Thank you, readers… Thank you, friends.

Thank you so much for your willingness to talk about a very difficult subject, to share your own hard-won lessons and heart-breaking stories, to comfort one another, to encourage each other in your awakening to the truth and the path to emotional healing.

Thanks for your courage in opening up about emotional child abuse, for your desire to share your journey with one another.

Thank you for being here.

You are a blessing to The Invisible Scar…

Now, on this blog anniversary, I wanted to share some new things for this year on The Invisible Scar:

  • The Invisible Scar is now on Facebook
    I just created The Invisible Scar Facebook Page as a place for adult survivors of emotional abuse to ask questions and find support. I’ll be sharing links to resources there as well as letting you know when a new post is up.
  • A regular publishing schedule is planned
    The Invisible Scar is run by just one person, so the publishing schedule these last two years has been erratic. However, I’ve an editorial calendar now, so the time between posts will be less than it has been. Planned articles include exploring the bunny-boiling phenomenon, misconceptions about emotional abuse, and a look at parenting in the movie “Frozen.” That’s just a peek at the articles coming up, but if you have a topic that you’d like explored or if you’re a mental health professional who’d like to be interviewed, please feel free to email me at theinvisiblescar[at]gmail.com.

Onward and upward,
Veronica
managing editor & content creator of The Invisible Scar

  1. Congratulations for making a difference. This was one of the first helpful sites upon my awakening from denial. I needed answers. There was so much to learn and understand about what, how, and why this happened. The important factor was knowing I survived and I was not alone. I hate to think of anyone having to undergo the pain, agony, and trauma that this abuse elicits. Spreading love is true healing. Thank you.

  2. A big CONGRATULATIONS on the anniversary! Its a major achievement and I for one, cannot even begin to describe the gratitude and the relief for the existence of this blog!! I still remember the sheer incredulity I experienced when I came across the link on one of my routine google searches. To be able to FINALLY put a name to what I was going through at that time. The Invisible Scar has been why I have been able to break free and achieve complete peace. And the inspiration behind writing out my story and posting it on Facebook for the world to see.

    Best Wishes and God Bless!
