Did anyone ever have a good relationship with one of their abusers after the fact (particularly incest).
I was abused by my brothers when I was young and one brother in particular I had a close relationship with (non sexual) from 13-33. It is called denial. Since the CSA stuff came up I have really distanced myself from him and we have not ever really talked about what happened when we we young. I do not believe that he ever meant me any harm by what he did. But harm me it did.
He and his family are coming to stay with me over Easter.
He seems to really miss me.
I am so confused.
Is it possible to have a healthy relationship with someone who abused you?
