My T has said repeatedly that the way to over come the shame is to continue to talk about the abuse and the feelings that I have over it. Since coming to MS and talking about this my shame lessens every time I address it all. Our stories are vastly d

What are we here for? To have families, accumulate titles, wealth and things? Or to come to wholeness? If the former is true, then I have failed. Intimate relationships have been near impossible, I left a career due to anxiety and I live very poorly.

Tryingtolive Abuse is not your fault. You did not ask for it, it was done to you. We all have a level of guilt from the abuse, why did I not tell, why did I go back and many other questions we ask ourselves. I know it is difficult to stop the ques
