I guess my question is...how do we deal with it?
Cause I honestly have no idea.
- Treatment intended to cure or alleviate an illness or injury, whether physical or mental.
I am a strong believer in "group therapy." Like minds coming together to talk about the issues.
I feel this forum is a great meduim for a sense of "group therapy." Being able to talk openly with like minds who carry the same injury. Many of us have had trust damaged in our past. This forum is a great starting point in finding the voices and personalities you can trust. We are all dealing with the same issue here.
I feel personaly - having to bottle up our secrets is the worst thing. We have been threatened, humilated, tormented, and tortued by that.
I was threatened for years - that if I talked about the "dirty secrets" the world, God, people, family, and friends would come to hate me.
Letting go of that fear and that lie -- I feel -- is the first step in recovery.
Here - your among those who can offer you the love and support you need to untangle the manipuation and lies imposed on your thinking process.
For me - I feel being able to talk about it openly without a fear of condemnation and judgement is a shot of what we are all looking for in our recovery.
God Bless the Internet.
