Your disclosure was very brave and a big step in healing. Don't be afraid by silence. It took my wife about a week to really say anything to me after reading my story. When we finally did talk, she confessed to taking a hammer to all of the Christmas decorations my mom had given her - her way of expressing herself for my moms failure to protect me.
It's okay to find the faith to saunter forward
With no fear of shadows spreading where you stand
And you'll breathe easier just knowing
that the worst is all behind you
And the waves that tossed the raft all night
have set you on dry land
