I do hope you are now in a safe place...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Larrisa, telling and no longer keeping it secret is the first step toward healing, even if it's telling people online. But at some point, you will have to deal with the emotional residue the abused has caused you, because if you don't, those buried emotions and feelings will manifest themselves in all aspects of your life. Please read the comments (both Part 1 & 2) I left this morning for Kellen titled Part 1: The danger of using knowledge to circumvent pain.... Much of what I wrote applies to you every bit as much as they apply to Kellen.

Thank you for sharing more of your story with my visitors and me.

Additional note: Larrisa, if you don't opt in for automatic notification on the Thank You page after you send your submissions (for example, opting to be notified when your contribution is approved to go live on my site; opting for any one or all of the three will do the job), none of my regular visitors will get notified when your story is posted. This is a programming glitch that I have no control over, but one that may affect the number of visitors who will both read and comment on your stories.

Continue your journey of healing by listening /learning but doing
by: Maurice

OH Larissa, Darlene has given you challengeing words to continue your healing process. Yes knowing and learning that we were abused is not enough. To be truly loving of oneself and acknowledgeing one's beauty within and prettiness without we must be up and doing something to acknowledge that reality and that fact. Larrisa, please do that for yourself, You can accomplish anything you want and never doubt that fact. I can do it, I will do it, I must do it just for me. I am SPECIAL NOW. Only you can make your body beautiful after all the disgusting things that was done to it. NOT MY FAULT, NEVER OF MY DOING I AM NOT TO BLAME. The mess those awful people did to you making you feel as you do were very sick people. Not real human beings. They need to be named and shamed.
