The Shocking Video That Really Has A Second Message

When I first saw this video without reading the meaning behind it or even listening to the words, it was shocking and yet at the same time, very truth-telling of someone who has experienced sexual abuse.  Sia (an Australian music artist) specifically wrote this song about the painful journey of finding love after enduring heartbreak and was expressed through this video.  However, because the video was done with a 12-year-old dancer and 28-year-old dancer/actor, it spoke volumes of something more evil and tragic.

I have touched on this very issue in one of my other posts but this says it all in video form.  When a child, pre-teen has been trained in being molested and sexually abused, they want to fight off their predator/molester but do not know how.  There is anger, hurt, pain, fear, and so much more which is very well expressed through this young girl in the video.  But what is more disturbing and unfortunately very real today with some sexually abused victims, is how they will often feel bad for their predator and will even protect them.  It is known as the Stockholm Syndrome.

Even in the end, you find that the young girl will try to rescue the man despite the pain that was given.  Please understand that although this video was not meant to be about what I am sharing, it definitely shows you a good portrayal of what a victim of sexual abuse or even domestic abuse (from child to adult) thinks and feels and does.

Please note:  If you have suffered from sexual abuse there can be a triggering effect of flashbacks, painful memories and more.  Best to have someone watch with you.

  2. I understand about Stockholm Syndrome only too well. I decided not to watch but it is good to give people the free choice. It is so true about all those complicated feelings which just highlights how young is young. A door and generation to abuse is wide open now the consequences are horrible to contemplate. I always pray for the children. Thank you for your posting. God Bless x

    • I am so sorry you had to be exposed to this type of abuse. I am glad that you can however share about it. Many still live with that secret and struggle to say a word about what they went through and live without some type of healing so that they can live a more fulfilled life. Thank you for sharing. Bless you!
