Today and other days as well but, especially today, I learned a very valuable lesson.

I once posted a lot here. I did so as I had no other outlet where I felt "safe" to tell others how much I was hurting. Well, I found other avenues to share locally and the sharing was not in away that some might think. And NO The sharing was NOT sexual. I say this because some might think so, as I have in the past.

What I found was the awesome power in the gospel of Christ. Some religions are NOT so bad. Many are. I understand others here were molested by clergy and I believe you when you tell your story. There is a great amount of "legalism" in the church.

What I discovered today that I wanted to come here and post about is: Other men here might not be able to really "hear" your story. And those men might be in a position of trust. Even though they are in a position of trust, YOU ARE VALUABLE. I found myself in a pickle here some time ago and believed I was too blame but, I learned today outside of being on here that I someone elses lack of boundaries and unkindness was to blame.

WE all are hurting boys.

Be well,
aka DJsport

good to "see" you again, Avery. and to "hear" from you, too!
good points!
