For me telling the secret was so difficult - it felt like I was a little kid again. But I'm so glad I did, and now it's a lot easier. Once it's out then there's no secret to block out and no feeling of "If it's not my fault why can't I talk about it".
I know I will never forget, but I also know now that I will reach a point where what happened can't hurt me anymore. I don't know when I started thinking like that; maybe good feelings about ourselves slip into our heads as silently as the bad ones.
Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me. (Woody Guthrie)
