I agree with Nathan we never have to forgive if we choose not to. But my prep is not worth the time and emotional anger that I direct at him for most of my life.
Why allow him to steal anymore of my life then he has already taken.
I talk to my perp a few years ago on the phone and he is still the same sick fuck that I knew over thirty years ago.
But I know that he got caught doing his sick thing to another child and it cost him seven years in jail in Florida. That he is a register sex offender there. That he can never again deny who and what he really is. It is there on the web for all to see.
No matter where he goes there will be the label of "sex offender"
that follows him like a bad smell. And that there is no way he can ever rid himself of that smell. I hope the smell is like a rotten corps, for that is what he is to me.
To own one's shadow is the highest moral act of a human.
