After 37 years, I'm ready to heal


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm so glad to finally begin this process after so many years of struggling to find peace. I have never been able to share my story (except with a few very close friends) until now. I have read several threads and look forward to connecting with many of you - to feel loved and validated and to lend support. I am here, finally.

With tears, love and gratitude,

Bambi

Hi Bambi

Welcome to this site. I read your story, and I want to say well done! It's so difficult finally speaking out! I was abused by my stepdad from age 11-16 and I kept quiet for 12 years.

This site us a good place to start because we all know how you are feeling and are really supportive especially if you are having a bad day/week. I hope you find what you came to this site for. I wish I had found it sooner, like a couple of years ago when I was really struggling with my feelings and emotions and didn't know where to turn to and I thought I was the only person that had gone through abuse. 

I'm glad you have found this site and you are on your way to recovery.

Message me if you want a chat or you want to ask anything.

Hi Sparkling,

Thank you so much! My heart breaks for the trauma you suffered at the hands of your stepdad. I am so sorry.

Thank you also for reading my story. I know this is where I need to be and I appreciate your warm welcome. It has taken me most of my life to get here but I have finally arrived at a place where I feel safe to share. 

With much love,

Bambi
