Live To Tell

I have a tale to tell.

Yes, I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse.
I will tell it, one day, or a few days with my therapist when I get one.
It's hard for me to cope with this, not being able to say here all that happened, and possibly not even being able to tell my therapist either.
These horrid things, they sometimes creep up and can eat at you. You can almost, or do, vomit. Or choke. 
You physically feel as you did when you were those ages the things happened.
Believe it or not I have learned to forgive.
I urge anyone who has faith to read this book:
You will be moved. The author is a friend of mine who has helped me with kind words of encouragement and advice.
I'm not plugging this book, it really has changed me,
The hurt I still feel, but I read and realise I CAN forgive and I have,
You can, too.
I may even feel healed one day. 
I know I will never forget the torment I endured. But I'm on my way to being happier in myself and I'm beginning to grow as I start slowly to rebuild my life step by step. 
I imagine in a couple of weeks I will be out and about.
If you see me, don't mention the abuse, just say hello or give me a smile! 
I will return it with a glad heart.
Wow this was tough,
I hope the music video shows the emotion we all feel.

  1. Oh my.....I can't say it happened to me, but as a former counselor, I have had a lot of women who've come to me and told me their childhood tragedies. (The ones that made it through). Stay strong and do NOT let it define the rest of your life....when you're ready, talk it out and you'll begin to heal. My heart breaks for you (and all the other victims). :(
