I am a survior, of rape abuse and then some. These scars have been hindering my life. I think its because I've been ashamed of it, I'm going to start treating them like a badge of honor see if that helps me move on...

battle scars

proof of survival

wounded in battle = qualification for a medal

hope it helps.

Think about what it took to survive after that abuse Lav, so many just check out and take the easy route.

After what happened, everyone on this planet would feel exactly like you did.

The difference is you're here and helping others find that strength'

LAV -

the more you say
- the more likely it is to be useful
- both to others
- and to you.

I agree with traveler completely, all I would say is that there is no difference between the two.

Helping you and helping others is the exact same thing.

keep talking LAV, you're doing great

Stay strong
Mike
