coming to terms...

Posted by missophelia , 08 June 2013 · 78 views

I have realized that I have not come to terms, in many ways, with being raped.

I am not sure how I feel about that.

Or what to do about it.

Thank you bellachai :hug: :hug: :hug:
Maybe you hit the nail on the head yourself when you say. ... How I feel about that.I don't know but I'm beginning to see that experiencing myself is key and trite as it sounds everything flows from that. At least for me, beginning to feel like there will always be denial to some extent, but maybe letting it be, at the very least not turn it into a bad thing or giving it as another reason to beat ourselves up about. There was a documentary a saw recently about a woman taken by the nazis and she attributed her and others survival to being able to escape the reality of it in their minds.So she saw it as a talent that was key to her survival and that others maybe not so lucky. wow was a new view for me.

Wow, that is a new view, what that woman said about how she survived. And I think you are right, not giving it as another reason to beat ourselves up.

Thanks for all you say, Zelda.
