Always believe in your self: Get help: You'll be fine
by: Anonymous

Please be gentle and kind but firm, take action, speak with a therapist: Have a real friend or two your own age and gender: (most important) from our school days or childhood years we know that having a friend we can tell our innermost thoughts and secrets to is a great relief: Knowing we have their trust and they ours: Friends to me can at times mean more than siblings do: The old saying, you can choose your friends but not your family: There is so much talk about child abuse The positive and the negative that at times even in recovery and healing from the effects and doing one's best to let go and live one's life to the full Ghosts and voices of the past emerge and letting them pass by or go can be a testing time once again: But let go I must and get on with living the NOW time of my life: I have learned and been helped by Darlene's comments to each of her visitors: I find solace and support in her loving encourageing words from her heart to each one of us: She truly empowers me to ALWAYS BELIEVE IN MYSELF: That you must do too: with real friend and some form of counselling you'll begin to Live the NOW time of your life to the full, looking forward not back: It is a struggle, but you take charge of your own life's journey NOW: Today: I WILL I CAN I MUST Because I am WORTH it: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body: I will etc my new motto:

Thank you
by: Denise

I can relate to this more than you know. I have gone through being abused by my brother-in-law sexually from the age of 7. Due to lack of parental help when telling, the stage was set for a downward spiral for many years, leading to clergy abuse and a whole host of things in between. I am interested in starting a blog to both tell my story and take questions and help others. Can you advise how to proceed, blogs to follow, etc? Thank you.
