I started my blog to help heal me. I need to write down what happened to me and have other people see it. I have also found that reading other similar blogs, while sad, has been incredibly healing for me. For two reasons. The first being, I am not alone. It was not something about me specifically that made the abuse happen. I can read other people’s blogs and be outraged for them, which is transferring into outrage for me and the child I was. Second, reading other people’s blogs, lets me understand that you can survive and thrive even while in the turmoil that healing creates.
