I have found that sometimes distance from "family" is required in order for the healing process to begin. I have also found that when I hung on to anger, rage and hostility, it was me who suffered the most. It was when I finally allowed myself to feel—fully and truly feel—all the negative emotions that were consuming me that they finally let me go; and then left me in a place of peace and tranquility. THAT brought about more positivity in my life. I hope the same for you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. And I do hope you keep with art and writing. The piece of art you included here is, in a word...revealing. Many abuse survivors will be able to relate to the deeper meaning within the image. Thank you for including it.

You are a good and true Man: Be Brave now and let GO
by: maurice

Sadly I know many: I have journeyed with them: Those who trusted me with their story certainly painted the same picture of the effect of incest in their lives: Each individual were struggling to find there way out: Ecah had his/her pain about it and the effects: The one thing in all of their telling was the need to love again the one who was their own flesh and blood: I know forgiveness comes at different stages of ones life: I pray your time is closer than you might want it: Darlene has certainly given you food for thought in her heartfelt words to you personally: I am sure you will dwell on these loving/feeling words: Hi maybe NOW you are being asked tomove on and let go: I am 64 years of age I was fifty four when I let go and forgave: It was easy for me My abuser was dead: But I still had to let go or I would have died myself: Holding on is not the answer to healing from abuse: Be Brave, Be strong. with Darlene's words echoing in your ears forgive and move on: I forgive you is all you have to say: If you still feel you can stand eith whoever that's fine they'll understand: I stood by my Father for years after finding out who he was and he never let on: I left well enough alone because I had moved on:
