I have found that writing from the perspective of my abuser (the poem) was cathartic and sharing this with my Medium family has been healing for me. I know that by sharing this — others may find their strength. I encourage you, even if the sharing is vague and doesn’t tell the “whole ugly story” — by writing about it you may find some release. YOU didn’t welcome or bring those experiences on yourself so there should be no shame in them. I know that is easier said than done but truly — it was NOT your fault.
