That's a good idea. If I had faced up to what happened way back when, I wouldn't have so many bad habits so ingrained in me now.
But I was set up for the perp. Our life at home had been terrible, no matter how much I thought my parents' divorce was terrible at that time. But I guess I can't wish for their marriage to work out, just for me to do things differently.
Yeah, I wish I had the guts to face up to what happened to me and stop it right after the first time. The SA itself was bad enough, but the pathetic way I let it happen again and again while staying silent really bothers me. Hell, all of it bothers me.
If I keep rambling like this I'm going to decide that I can't pick just one thing to change!
