No good reasons why...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Sue, even if you were to hear an answer, it would never be good enough because there are no good reasons why. Ever. Something I learned a very long time ago: When we as child abuse survivors focus on the WHY, we do it at the expense of dealing with our pain. In the big picture, the WHY of it doesn't matter. What matters is addressing the emotional trauma in order to move forward with our lives. If we don't, we give up our power to the very molesters and abusers who so callously took our innocence away. Your molester isn't worth one more second of one more day of your life, Sue.

If you aren't already, I strongly urge you to seek out some form of counselling to help you with all this. You're the one who's worth the care and attention.
