Let me introduce myself. I am a person who was sexually abused by a priest as an adult. I was old enough to “know better” as far as how the birds and the bees operate. But naive enough to not know that I was caught within a game.
As a result of my experience, I felt shamed, confused, outcast, stupid, betrayed and helpless. And I thought I was alone in my experience. I felt it was my fault.
I wanted to start this blog because I want to reach those people who are still too scared or ashamed to acknowledge what happened to them, or are unaware they were abused. That is not so very uncommon when you are abused as an adult.
I want to tear down the walls and let light into the shadows. I want to expose the predators….not publicly by name…..but by their actions so they will be known by what they do. I want to cut through the myths and empower those who have had their power taken from them by the very people they trusted to protect them.
There is much to learn and the journey has just begun. Stay tuned for more…..
Adults are victims too….
