I just got a PM and when I replied I realized that maybe my words hold more truth than I care to hold on to....
Basically I just said that I wanted to learn to get over this stuff from my past and not be in a "woe is me" cloud. Then as an after though, I thought maybe I'm never suppose to forget or get over this stuff...maybe this is why...helping others come out and talk about it, KWIM?
I don't know if a person could ever "get over" what happened to you as a child. What a person can do is a.) learn how to cope with it and b.) learn how to make it help you to be a better person.
I compare it to when I had my miscarriage. I will never "get over it" and darned be anyone that makes me try. It's part of my life and it always will be. It may get to the point that it no longer hurts, but it will always be there.
Helping others could be just one of the steps for your own healing....who knows?
