tired but feel a lot better about my teen years

if u did not know I was abused from 5-16 incest

so my teen years were not all that great

if u want to know more pm me

it was really good they helped me cry and be open about the abuse and we were supported by kids who had done other trainings so it was really really good.

My brother mJ.

I'm glad that you had a rewarding retreat & was able to cry.

I am looking forward to your retreat and hopefully crying there too.

Heal well, my brother, Mj, heal well.

Pete..Irishmoose.

you will Moose

most of Us thought we were going on some training like adventure that would be more of a how to be a mentor for kids who were hurt

instead we got much more, we were mentored by a bunch of teenangers. What better way to understand our own teen years but through the eyes of a real teenager

Sounds great.

I'm not envious. But in the past I would have been.

interested in hearing more!

Wow, Michael. Mentored by teens? That had to be very...well, I don't know, but very something. For me, I'm not sure I could have let my guard down. Sounds like it was very worthwhile for you, though; I'm glad.

(((Michael)))

Peace,

John

there were parts where the kids would not be able to handle things they were not part of that just the men it is to help us work with them later on in may we do a weekend with them to help them (new boys) the ones on this retreat already went thru the boys retreat. Boys to men is a great thing and they are international if u google them there is a site where u can find centers all over the world
