I have been just reflecting today on the many survivors that haven’t yet come to terms with what has happened to them. I urge you if you’re young, go to counseling now. Even though you may think that it isn’t affecting you now, it may rear it’s ugly head later in life as it did me. Young or old, do not pretend this didn’t happen to you, as a survivor you deserve a chance at a thriving life. It won’t happen if you do not face that you were once a victim. If you are still here, you are a survivor, but thriving as a survivor is a matter of choice.
