Child Abuse Commentary From Emily L

by Emily L
(California, USA)

I just want to thank you Darlene for gathering all the information in the form of articles on the various types of abuse - from ignoring to actual violence... you really are helping me a lot. I am a registered nurse and I feel I ought to be helping a lot more children but I am crippled by my own inability to overcome MY experiences with child emotional and physical, sexual abuse. So this website is a real gift.

Thank you.

Thank you for your lovely words. I'm delighted the articles I've written for this site have been so helpful to you. And than YOU for all you've done to share your story and help other visitors here, including children. Your story helps more than you'll ever realize. And so do the comments you leave for others. The few minutes you take to reply leaves a part of your Self that connects on some level with everyone who reads the supportive and encouraging comments; and while the measurement of support, help and good may be intangible, there is no question in my mind that you're doing the work you've been wanting to do with children, young and not so young. We are all connected; I believe that with all my heart. So when you reach out, you reach out in ways that you cannot even begin to imagine. I value all YOU do here, and within your Self, Emily. When you can, you will do more. And if you don't do anything more, you've done all you can; and that IS good enough. YOU'RE good enough, Emily.
