How can I write about child abuse as only a victim?
I will tell you how. It has taken me all my life, almost 60 years, to come to terms with, deal with and then finally let it out for others to read. I have the right, no demand the right to tell others, This was my childhood that I never had, my life and I had to keep it all to myself. I thought it was a punishment for me being evil, a justifiable one according to the perpetrator. The one person who should have loved me and saved me from a living hell was the one who created it for me. I cried long and hard as a child but only to myself and my maker. If only I had cried out to others then perhaps it would not have happened. I have cried out in my book silently but loudly enough for the world to read and hear.
I know that others may need a space to do the same, a space that I was never given for so long. This technology has made my words accessible where before my dyslexia prevented my words being heard by others. Please use the blog to be strong, bold and secure that letting out is also letting go. Begin the healing, ears are listening and words will be read by others that understand, have an empathy that only comes from knowing and being there. This was denied me for so long, so please use my experiences and site as a spring board to vault yourself back into a true and honest life again. You are beginning a healing and making whole process with each touch of the keyboard.
