A line in a movie said, "We don't talk about War because it is too painful, we don't talk about it, because no one wants to hear about it"
That concept struck me.
I believe it is exactly the same about sexual abuse, about incest especially and more...when it is about members of the FALC.
It isn't about our personal experienes. It is about how our truth affects your world...or makes you think or perhaps re-think what you have always known.
I love when my perception is tilted into seeing things differently.
However, I also know there are many whose whole lives would topple over IF their perception were to change. If they were to fully accept the details and truth about sexual abuse within a religion based upon high morals and values.
I get it.
But, most don't talk because YOU don't want to hear.
I know the weight of my silence was as thick as the refusal to hear.
There really isn't a point of talking when you know the other person doesn't want to know what you saying.
Our silence will be broken to the people who want to hear.
And, it is my belief, especially when abuse happens within a family, the hearing ear will not be family.
Imagine IF we all understood this about the silence of sexual abuse....that we will talk when others WANT to hear.
