A Message to Child Abuse Survivors on this Site

by A loving mother
(Location Undisclosed)

I stumbled across this site when I read a horrible story of child abuse from a different website. I started reading your stories and am truly heartbroken. I have shed many tears for you all and pray God will heal your broken hearts and bodies. Fortunately, I have never experienced any abuse. I just wanted you all to know that I think you are very brave for sharing and I hope that in some way it helps you heal. When I first started reading your stories, I determined to read each one. In a way, I felt I was helping bear some of your pain. However, I am not even a third of the way through and cannot bear to continue. I have 2 small children that I love dearly and cant imagine anyone harming. So, it is with heavy heart that I say I wish I could have loved and protected you all. I do not know that this will be posted because it is not a story of abuse, but I felt like I needed to say something.

How could I not post such a message...a message that so many need to hear but never do. Thank you for sharing your heart-felt words with my visitors and me. I send you a virtual (((hug))).

And just one more thing: between story posts, commentaries, articles, comments, etc., there are in the neighbourhood of 10,000 stories on this site. I would never expect that any one person could from this point read each and every one of them. The fact that you've acted by writing your note here sends loving positive energy into the Universe, which touches each and every human being on the planet; THAT goes so much further than simply reading peoples' stories.

The positive heart vibes coming from this site today ''WOW''
by: maurice

Hearts sure speak to each other even from a distance, that I truly what I believe this site has done for me personally: from sad and broken hearts as they share their own horrific abuse story with Darlene: 10-000 that say it all for me: Darlene you sure are a remarkable spiritual woman fully sensitive from that great big heart of yours for each of your visiitors: This message from a loving, caring, mother/woman's heart sure empatises with each story she has read and gives hope to all those lucky to read it: Hearts do speak to hearts, the difficult side sometimes is that it is hard to get off one's bottom and act on the love being shared in a comment: Especially when Darlene speaks from her heart: Her loving suggestion is always worth the effort Think about some form of counselling: Also having a real friend in one's own age and gender is most important for me: I have real friends in this category who if they were my siblings I would have been the best blessed spiritual child of the universe: We listen; we empatise: we encourage: we live our lives to the full together and let each other live their lives to the full too in love and respect: We keep each other safe: male and female two are single as I am and two are married with beautiful families children and now grand-children: My life's blood true and great friends; we all help each other to have healthy minds in ageing healthy bodies: Darlene the second time this day you have lifted my heart and given me great feelings of hope and encouragement that there is a life to be lived to the full after abuse:
