So what I needed. That is so touching, tears come to my eyes, and that is a daunting feat!
This place is most certainly a blessing, I am so happy to have found it and really, don't know what I would do if I hadn't.
I also often feel I still deserve the blame,I knew him, I knew what was going on, he said I wanted it, and I was too hot, too sexy to not, I invited it, and..... that I should be so over it by now.
I need those reminders that it wasn't my fault, as painful as it can be.
Knowing that there are people who care, comfort, and support, and truly understand is so reassuring and wonderful.
Thank you so much.
**safe grateful hugs**

Thanks Louise. I was going to say something about do we all really have to be naked - but then I guess it could be a metaphor for being totally open and honest with each other, rather than literal nudity. I mean, not that I'm opposed to being naked but I am a bit shy...

I received this once from you when I was hurting so much. I never stop looking at it, as it brings some comfort to my soul.

Thanks for being so wonderful. I love you.

(((elle))) i guess you spoke what many of us were thinking.  to be honest, when i first saw the photo, my first response was fear.  exposure, vulnerability.  then i went back seconds later after reading lou's entire post.

it's all different when you are surrounded by safety and understanding.  ....but i'm still wearing my clothes! ;)

and btw, i was wondering if lou was allowed to make so many of us cry like that????;)  however, i suppose she was ALLOWING us to shed the good tears that we so seldom feel. (((sweet lou)))

besides....she has 5 friggin kids!  she's allowed to do about anything!

(((hugs to all)))

Thank you soooooo much for sharing the picture and commentary. I'm still crying. I really needed that uplifting reasuurance. And sometimes I feel that my rapes are all my fault because I'm not skinny or attractive. That no one would do that to me unless I really deserved it. Thankyou...thankyou...thankyou!!!
((((((lotsa hugs))))))

I've loved that picture for a long time.  It is very representative of what I've found here.  Thank you again for making it available, and thanks to Alexandra too, for helping you.
