as a child abuse survivor and a child of a alcoholic parent I never thought I would be able to move forward with my life. Isnt that something we all go through, sometimes we shut it all out not realising that is has already affected us in our relationships, friendships, lives. If only those who had committed the act had realised how devastating it has been for us to exist. Now I have a friend who is going through the exact same thing I went through, with the exception he is a man. For so many years he blocked it all out. He is gay and has always believed that is because he was born gay, he has never had any female friends, hated his mother and father without understanding why and our paths crossed and we became friends. I told him about how my sister abused me as a child and how it had affected me as an adult and he has gradually started to open up. Now after I found out about my sister and what she had done and talked about everything, I then realised I need to know who I really was because I had been living a lie for so long that I didnt know myself. My inner child didnt know who I was either so the long painful journey began and I am blessed in that I eventually came out the other side a better understanding person that the one who had existed. Now in my life I am a Life Coach and Mentor online to others in the same situation as I have been. To those who read this perhaps this will give you the strength to face the past and finally let go and find the inner you and finally start moving forwards.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
