|Thanking My Lucky Stars|
November 14, 2017
It seems like every time I turn on the television, or open a web page, there's another victim of sexual assault/sexual harassment/sexual misconduct coming forward and naming their abusers.
My heart hurts for the sheer number of people coming forward.
And at the same time...I know that I am so, so, so blessed...or lucky....or whatever...that I've never had to experience such a horrendous trauma.
I've got friends who have come our and talked of their abuse when they were younger...and while I sympathize with them, I absolutely can't empathize. I can't even imagine the feeling of isolation and blow to their self esteem that happens when someone they trust betrays that.
While I can't understand where they're coming from...I absolutely support them in their fight. I support them in their recovery.
And I thank my lucky stars that I'm not where they are.
Love until later,
