|She thought this was going to be fun.....!|
His long life had been disappointing;
|The dog was her saving grace.|
|The girls in the family. So much sadness there.|
What you don't allow yourself to feel, you cannot heal.
According to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, in the U.S. 1 in 3 women and 1 in 6 men have experienced some form of sexual violence in their lifetime. When I began dealing with my own abuse in 1989 it was "only" 1 in 7 women. The abuse began when I was 10. I didn't reveal it until I was almost 30. It is the human nature of victims not to tell anyone.
