The forgiveness thread appears from time to time, so I just thought I'd seek out a balance of opinions.
Some people think that we cannot achieve an acceptable life balance if we do not forgive the paedophile/s that groomed/abused/attacked us.
If you cannot forgive, please add your reasons here. I'll start you off - please try and keep continuity of numbers:
1/ You stole my childhood.
2/ You groomed and abused me during my formative years - how am I meant to know who I really am.
3/ You implied that everyone did what we were doing, but nobody ever talked about it.
4/ You pretended that you were like my Grandparents, but they never hurt me, you lied.
5/ You destroyed my ability to trust.
6/ You called me your shark, because it implied that I was something fantastic (I am, but you would never know).
I could sit here all night, but that would imply that I am bitter and twisted (at work, its cynical, but I call it realistic).
Best wishes ...Rik
