Yes, you are a real hero. I know it, the girls you helped know it, and hopefully you really believe it.

I am a retired educator and not quite so retired psychotherapist. My blog sites are "Through a Jungian Lens" and "SkyClad Therapy."

Eirik the Great!

thank you for sharing this story of survival and strength.
your intro really does give good insight into your character.

you are a hero.
and the boy wonder avatar is awesome.

it is an amazing and inspiring history.

something you said struck home with me.
when i gave the abuser what he wanted, i did feel like i was manipulating him.
this gave me a false sense of power and guilt.
because i didn't really want to do it, i felt conflicted and complicit.
as an adult, i now see that i was being coerced into compliance.
the fact is, i only committed those acts
in order to "manipulate" and appease the abuser
in order to avoid assault,
and not because i wanted to.

it was self defense and desperation.

Wow, Erik.....I never knew. You are an amazing, impressive, and inspiring man. You're a real life hero.

Keith, Victor -

I so appreciate your kind words of support. I thought this thread withered on the vine long ago; two years have passed since I started it.
