I’m Doing a Guest Post!

Hello people!

Hope everyone has been having  a wonderful week!

I just wanted to let you know, today I am guest posting over at Stories That Must Not Die. It’s not a pleasant subject that I wrote about. Childhood sexual abuse. It’s also one that I don’t talk about much on my own blog. It’s a true story. It’s my story.

It’s raw, it’s brutal and it was a part of my childhood. I would really appreciate it if you would go over there and give it a read. Or not, because I would certainly understand if you don’t want to read something so unpleasant. But the only way we can stop child sexual abuse is to talk about it, make it so it’s not taboo anymore.

I’m not ashamed of what happened. It was NOT my fault. But too many stay quiet and continue to hurt. It’s not right. I wanted to show those others that went through what I did that they don’t have to feel ashamed, or scared, or hurt anymore. There are people that understand. There is help.

So let’s make this an open discussion, let’s not hide anymore.

My story is called, The Night I Became Terrified of the Dark

Go read, go discuss.

Thank you.

I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen! http://tobreatheistowrite.com

  1. You are such a wonderful and strong person Jackie. I will head over to read your post and I trust it will help others to deal with such a trauma and be able to move forward. Lots of admiration for you and even many more HUGS!

  2. Your story Jackie is so very harrowing and I have been greatly moved by it. I am so pleased you were able to stand up to your abuser and move on to be the wonderful woman you are.
