Thought I should start here since it's been so long since I participated here. I spent the last 2 years in twice weekly counseling working on healing from my C.S.A. I am now a survivor, no longer a victim. I love myself oh so dearly and I have a wonderful day...everyday......no matter what!

I look forward to sharing my story as well as some of the things that help me deal with life's little challenges.

Take care,
Orchid...aka Max10

Great to hear you wonderful news--I am happy you have found yourself and see yourself as a survivor. You had to work hard to overcome the past. Loving yourself is key--because the abuse robs us of loving who we are--we learn to loath and distrust.

Congratulations and keep sharing--stories of healing and moving forward gives hope and encouragement to everyone here.

Congratulations--you have worked hard. Learning to love yourself is so important in the healing process--because we have been programmed to believe we are not worthy of love or are not valued. Unfortunately for many of us, people around us reinforce these negative thoughts.

I am glad you are back and sharing your journey. It is important to share because successes inspire all other victims. Thank you

Kevin
