One of the hardest things to do is to share openly what you have locked down for many years. It is like sharing a dirty secret, but the important thing to remember is that this dirty secret isn’t yours, it is the perpetrators, and you did nothing wrong. Understanding you have done nothing wrong and sharing this won’t be easy, I advise you to speak with a professional to help you navigate this conversation further. Another important consideration is that people you love may not respond in the way you were hoping either and this won’t be an easy pill to swallow, especially given the dark and painful years you have endured. Navigating your way through this is a bit like going through treacle, but remember you can’t take responsibility for how other people behave, just stay focused on your own recovery and future peace.
