I am sitting here crying. Some is from the trauma and abuse i endured but some is relief in having a place to share and not be alone.

That's right Pete, you are not alone. This is a safe place for you to make connections with others who have had similar experiences.

I'm glad Ken told you about this site. The group of men here are compassionate, talented, wise and I feel honored to know them. Read posts and get to know your way round the site. There is so much here it can be overwhelming at first.

Welcome to MaleSurvivor Pete. Peace and love...

Michael

Trust.....

There's something I've learend is a ridiculous concept for me.

Oh I'm sure it works out for others, but it's been shown to me time and time and time again to not work for me. Pain always seems to follow trust.

Lack of trust almost kept me from posting. Maybe I should have followed that.

God is the only one I trust, but I'm not sure how much I do trust. I want to trust completely. Sometimes I think I do. I just don't know.

As for people.... well that's that whole other story.

My T said when she talked to Howard, for the WoR, she even commented to him that by the end of the weekend I might start opening up.... so really, why am I even bothering? Spending cash I don't have..... to be bottled up the whole time.

Guess It's because I'm hoping..... maybe that something might help.

Trust. i'm basically down to one person i trust now - that being my T. All it does is expose you to danger from others.

Does make me wonder why i bother sometimes.
