I read the posts on the Lies we learned to believe. But I want to read and write about the Truths we are learning now, the Truths which were withheld from us in the past.
The truth is, I am basically good.
I have value, as a human beaing, as a man, a father and a spouse.
I can, I will learn how to live in a healthy, committed relationship.
Sex is not Love.
Love is not sex.
The abuse is in the past, and I am in the present. I can, I do choose to leave the abuse in the past, and take the good I can find and make in the present with me to the future.
Thanks for listening.
