I want to reply but I don't. I want to express my heartfelt sorrow that I have, but I don't. I would like to share my perspective but I don't, because even though I may feel a common ground to some, the fact is I am a male. Much of what I have read is by women who have suffered at the hands of a male. I have not replied for this exact reason.
I digress for a moment. I have replied to a few, but did not express what I would have liked to express.
Anyways I question if maybe I shouldn't be here, being a male. I have read "who belongs here" before I was even considering about becoming a member but I don't see that being relevant to why I don't reply and maybe why I shouldn't be here.
I also know there is a forum for men, but being a survivor because of male predator, well, need I say more?
I guess the point of this is, I don't want to be a trigger, I don't want to offend anyone by just being a male and expressing my heartfelt emotion.
My T said to me that I am here for me and I can't control someones trigger, that maybe I should express myself as I have and put it out there, so here I am.
I am so wanting to delete this as I have with so many other posts that I have written. So I fight the urge as I hit publish....................
