At the survivors charity / therapy place I help at we seem to get young girls, 16 to 25, and older men, 35 to 45.
It must be the depth of shame and guilt we feel I suppose.
And although it's heartbreaking to see 16 yo girls trembling through the door for the first time it's also so rewarding to think they are getting help at the right time.
Society MUST do something to educate young men as to the help available, as well as the possible consequences of hanging onto this secret for so long. Perhaps we should all bang our drums a bit louder, and a few heads at the same time ?
It's so good to hear about young men seeking help, but it's all to rare.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.
