Thank you for sharing. Your words resonate with me - in my understanding of myself as a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I feel poignantly the universal need for the acknowledgement of these dark spaces of human truth. There must be space for me to tell my story, there must be space for my abuser to tell his story. They are two sides of the same story of pain, and it is my belief that we cannot move beyond that story of pain until both sides of it are acknowledged and heard, with love.
