If you could, in retrospect, change one thing about your childhood, what would it be?
I would have told my mother about my abuse when it first happened. Instead, I didn’t tell her until I was 36 years old. As a child, I didn’t want to see her upset. No, I didn’t think she would be upset with me. But I knew she would be upset. I also realized that she was raising my brother and I by herself, and these were people she trusted to watch us when she had things to do. That was my thought process when I was 7 years old.
What about you? What would you change? Leave a comment and let me know!
