I hope writing is cathartic for you...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Jansen, as I wrote to a story contributor yesterday...my absence of comments on this installment of your story is in no way an invalidation of what you are dealing with and how you feel about going home for the holidays. I am inundated with story submissions as of late, which has forced me to make some difficult decisions regarding the way I operate my site. In order to ensure my first-time story submitters get their stories posted in a timely manner and also get the benefit of my validating comments, I can now only offer such comments on the first installment of visitor stories. I trust you can appreciate the position I'm in. This really is a balancing act of my personal time, the needs of my visitors, and my ability to work on healing and recovery related projects intended to help child abuse survivors. Thank you for your understanding. And thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me. I do hope writing and posting your story and feelings on this site is in some way cathartic for you.

speak them here

i can relate about writing the experiences down and tearing them up... you dont want it to be in black and white.. it makes it real... but the truth is it is real regardless of if we write it down or not... it still happened... it still hurts and you still deserve to be heard.
I hope you find a way to write it down... i have found writing it on this site is a way for me to get it out... get rid of it but at the same time i have found others heard me... and related.. i am no longer alone with the depths of that which i experienced... there are others...and we can understand...

I know too well
by: anthony

hey Jansen, I relate very well to what you say! Even now at 43 I still haven't what you would call had any close and lasting relationship and while love really was only a word, I certainly can feel it now. Sex too had long been a dirty and disgusting aspect of my being and I truly stayed away from it and am also still now not sure where I am sexuality wise. However I don't think in the long run it matters who you feel love for; male or female, my goal has just been to really feel love!And it seems more likely to be male at present for me. Please too this is not something you overcome without help! I have had amazing help from a spiritual healer for several years. Its not easy or fun however it can be done. I will also put up my story on the site. You are a beautiful guy and you can heal and find peace!
