The effects of child abuse are varied and sometimes lifelong. And though you have also paid a legal price for some of those effects, you still have control over how you choose to perceive your life now. As long as we see ourselves as victims, our bodies will continue to deal with that using a stress response. But when we choose to see our situation in a more positive light, then instead, our bodies go into a relaxation response. This is important because the latter avoids illness, where the former brings on sickness. You are not what happened to you. And you can be, in fact, you already are, an active member of society. Keep writing your story, for you first, for others second. Just don't stay in the painful place writing your story can take you. Find ways to bring joy into your life. You deserve that, Robert. Thank you for sharing your story and the effects of what happened to you with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.
