Every once in awhile I go to ‘explore’ and click Childhood Sexual Abuse’ to see if yet another brave woman dare post on a subject long taboo. I would like to share this post as it eloquently describes a tendency to blame oneself for, well, just about everything.
Finding a community of women who are gentle with their comments to others who dare speak about what has been unspeakable has opened up a new world for me. I have spent most of my life feeling like an outcast with an aching loneliness now partly relieved by the on-line world of brave people willing to share the truth of their lives…finally.
We are trained not to speak out, speak up, even if the training was covert and without words. That we now do tell the truth of our lives breaks taboo and is courageous.
