For so long I was ashamed of participating in sex as a child. I did it. I thought I consented. Honestly, I really thought an 8 year old me consented. Amazingly enough, I could totally see child abuse in others. Toward me, I never saw it.
This adult child therapy has changed my life. It amazes me that I really was locked into 8 years old in my mind regarding my CSA. No kidding. A friend of mine had her daughter molested. I was angry and horrified. But I thought I was guilty.
As insane as that is, that was me. Being here a while and the Adult Child therapy has changed my life.
I now know I had nothing to do with my exploitation as a child. I was abused and abandoned at key times in my life by my slack ass parents. The predators found me and did evil things.
And now I am not an accomplice in the crimes committed against me. I am very thankful for this site and those that participate.
I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.
