Many who have dealt with sexual abuse have difficulties working through lasting emotional distress. People have basic defenses when managing negative emotions due to sexual abuse. They are often angry or want to be left alone. Some live silently and may lack trust in others. When a person fails to effectively deal with these negative emotions, they distance themselves, which may lead to deeper emotional pain.
