On the long road to wellness

Posted by Poet912 , 09 February 2013 · 27 views


On a warm, sunny October early evening in 1964, at 12, I went looking for my sister, who was late again for dinner. I found her friends instead, who forced me into a car, took me to a dump and took their turns raping me.

It was 48 years ago. I thought I'd achieved all the understanding and had exercised forgiveness toward the perpetrators long ago, but I find that I've buried the experience under layers of self-protection that have prevented me from finding the rage that lies underneath against the boys who harmed me. And short-circuiting the pattern of having relationships with abusive husbands and of depression requires that I find the rage.
