This morning, I was intrigued while watching The Today Show, when they interviewed Ashley Judd. If there was ever a dysfunctional family, hers was it. In her memoir, she talks about her own CSA. Ashley is living proof that a person can go through CSA and emotionally heal well enough to tell about it and overcome it.
I'm sorry... I don't mean to sound harsh, but I think that many CSA victims choose to remain *trapped* in a life of self-pity because of their past. It doesn't need to be that way. Most of us have things from our past that we wish never happened. What are we going to do about it? Sit and cry for years on end and allow it to continue ruining our present and future OR... deal with it, put it in the past and move on to a better life? I vote to move on. Let's quit giving so much power to our past. Let's quit allowing our past to destroy our marriage and our marriage bed.
I am the captain of my soul.
