Perhaps it isn't yet important if you experienced CSA in a "classical" sense, what ever that means. For a long time, I've been saying that if it was just the abuse and none of the bullying, social trauma, and emotional isolation, then it wouldn't have been so bad. I've found that exploring the auxiliary traumas (bullying, social, emotional, etc) has lead to insights about my CSA and a great deal of healing. The events of physical CSA contact are, at this point in my life, events. But the choices to which they lead me, the pain to which they built has been more freeing than anything else and as I've examined these auxiliary events, I've found more hidden ones. So perhaps following your mind and heart where they are leading you will give you more peace than anything else?

Strength in power is a false victory rooted in vapid grandiosity. Strength in character and integrity is the freedom to act righteously irrespective of the surrounding pressure. True power is the presence of mind to live with character and integrity.
