When we're forced to suppress our anger and hostility as children, especially when the anger stems from being controlled and manipulated in terrible ways, without the benefit of professional help, that anger and hostility begs to come to the surface. We are haunted by the fact that not only were we abused, but that we had no voice. The longer we try to bury those emotions, the more they'll try to resurface. Anger is a symptom of something deeper going on. When we take the time to get the help we need, that anger can let us go. Sounds like you have a great support system in your team, Hayley. If the anger continues, I suggest you seek out some form of counselling or therapy, again if necessary. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing more of your story and how the Theo Fleury/Graham James (the convicted pedophile) trial affect you with my visitors and me.

Affected By Recent Two Year Sentence Given to Graham James

It is disgusting how little time Graham James got for the severe permanent harm he inflicted. Our justice system is still not taking "Abuse" as seriously as they should!!!

Graham James abuse
by: Anonymous

No body takes it as serious as it should be taken. It potentially ruins childhoods. Especially when one or both the parents can't accept that what happened to their abused child has left scars. A lot of the time it feels like my mum can't accept what her darling boy did to me for nearly five years. Apparently it was my fault I felt confused by everything moving so fast after I disclosed the abuse, because I opened my big mouth. Child, (and indeed elder) abuse should carry a mandatory life sentence for the abuser, no matter what.
