I realized that I've been CL here on this board for a year now.   I started my CL duties on Sept. 16 of last year.   In that time there have been some new posters and some returning posters.   I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you to all of you who post on this board and make this board the place of healing that it is.  You put yourselves out there and share your stories and share your compassion with one another.

You are Welcome!

Zoe, I love coming here.

I was "Abused" as a child, so it helps to know I am not Alone in this "Healing" Journey.

Actually someone else told what I had confided in them, and so I have some issues surrounding that...:smileysad:...

I tried telling but nobody was "Listening"...

So I was an Adult and married with a child and it was very difficult.

The Cycle of Abuse though has been broken, and the "Silence" Shattered!

It does help to know that others can relate on some level. 

It's difficult when a confidence is broken. I don't know the circumstances surrounding that breach but it can be difficult to open up after that.  I'm also sorry that no one listned when you were able to tell.

I tried protecting others, I never knew he was doing this to someone else.

At ten or so I was done...made sure I was never ALONE with this person.

Don't know what I would have done if he had hurt my sister.

Imagine my shock finding out that there was someone else ONLY she wasn't "Believed" but I stood there listening to them the "ADULTS"??? and found myself saying it's true, he did it to me.

They carried on as if I hadn't even spoken.

Then they made younger kids go outside as they didn't want them hearing.

Irony is I told them maybe they should be, what if it has already happened to them to or maybe it is not too late to protect them...:smileysad:...

What I struggle with is the person who does this gets protected, what about person he has done this to?

Because no one protected me I made I protected my children.

To this day I can remember thinking, I wasn't the ONLY one.

Anger at what I had LOST...

Why is the shame directed at the person who was hurt and betrayed?

Makes no sense to me.

I was a child, a little girl...:smileysad:...

Once the "Secret" is out the Cycle can be stopped!

No more "Shattered" or "Silent" Screams...

Except in My Dreams...:smileysad:...
