I recently read this statement "The abused child begins to organize his world around the wound." [Mic Hunter: Abused Boys, The Neglected Victims of Sexual Abuse, p.69]
I am dumbstruck reading this. What a revealation! This statement alone explains a lot of my behavior and choices that I had made throughout my entire life. My choice of places to live, career, friends; what thinking defenses I cultivated, what songs, books and movies I found appealing.
Have you guys done this as well? How has it manifested itself in your life? Inquiring minds want to know.
