Oh, if only I would have had the courage to do what you're doing. 30 years ago my first therapist urged me to separate from the family I was born to. 5 years later another therapist urged me to do the same. 10 years later another therapist begged and pleaded for me to separate from them. 15 years... 20 years... only when they had exhausted my financial resources and re-victimized me did I finally reach a place where I had no choice but to separate. I really had no option. They became absolutely furious because I had taken away their power. Now that I am free from them I regret not having done it earlier in life.
Congratulations, brave eagle; fly high and proud!
I have taken to the stand-up comedy stage to educate other male survivors and those who try to love them. I blog about my isolated religious upbringing where physical and sexual abuse were commonplace and I serve as a facilitator of a weekly support group for men who have suffered sexual assault.
