Flashbacks…A Good Thing? ??

This article from Recover Your Life give me lot’s to ponder about

While some of the information is helpful,  I couldn’t help but become furious when they say that flashbacks are a good sign.  Seriously?  I am a smart, well educated woman, and I highly doubt that the author of this article was ever raped.  If she or he was, well then the English language is comprised of so many words and it is my opinion that the author could have chosen more appropriate language that would have conveyed the same message they were trying to send.

Initially I was going to post the entire article,  but I am clearly partial now. I just think that it had so much great and helpful information,  and was ruined by saying flashbacks are good.

Even if they are,  personally, I don’t want to re-live my rape every single day at random times! I don’t find that helpful at all.

Maybe I am being too harsh because there is some great information there, and, not all people are the same.  I’m sure that there are thousands of survivors that will benefit from hearing  those words.
