Remembering the times I was told to get over it, to forgive my offender and to just move on from childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA), along comes this story of one of the olympic gymnasts who were abused by their doctor.
I identify with the lifelong curse and will never tire in trying to help you understand what my life has become.
This is the core of my problem with the church who didn’t help the child being abused, the spiritual leaders who dismissed my trauma and those who continue to judge me from their own simplistic perspective.
Maybe if you read the linked piece about what is happening now you’ll get a small glimpse into what I have had to deal with since the age of ten.
If I sound angry, you’re damn right I am.
