Beginning My Journey

by Anne

At the age of 54, I finally understand what ten years of sexual abuse has done to me as a person. It has completely controlled my life. Shortly I will be in a Health Center in Ontario, Canada to start my healing journey for real. Thanks to videos of Eckhart Tolle, I have been able to cope until I go to this center in about two more weeks. I feel very fortunate to be able to go to this Centre. I found your site by accident today and have really connected to its stories. It gives me hope that my future can be one with peace and joy. Thanks for creating this site, when I return to my home province, I hope to start a group to help others on their journey to heal. Anne

I know you submitted your contribution quite some time ago. I've been dealing with eye issues that have made reading online a major problem. My apologies for taking so long to post. I am trying to post in the order each submission was sent, but sometimes that is difficult because of the way the website system is designed.

By now you've gone into the health centre, and quite possibly have completed the therapy offered there. It takes a great deal of courage to make the choice to heal from sexual abuse, any kind of abuse, because it usually means the scars are reopened and the old festering wound becomes terribly painful again. I congratulate you on making yourself a priority.

I send you continued healing energy, Anne. Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me.
