Its strange to read this and realize the 'potential' that has been blocked, not taken, because of the abuse. Innocence and potential ARE separate things but its odd to view them as separate, to realize so much was shut down or 'hidden' to protect from being harmed further. To realize that you are the only one who can prevent your future growth and just get use to hiding it all away, from being taken and used against you, then years down the road, habit of keeping it hidden. Wow! Thanks for the post.

Thank you all for your marvelous insights smile

"Survivors need an opportunity to define their own sexuality in their own terms, rather than in reaction to the abuse, so that they stop allowing their offenders to have power over them sexually."
