A comment left on that last post reminded me of another important reality. Healing from childhood abuse takes time, there’s no doubt about that, but the other thing is, it’s never too late to start! There’s plenty of times I look at my life, at the age of 35, and wish I hadn’t wasted so much of my 20’s trying to avoid dealing with the abuse issues. On the other hand, it’s better that I started late than not at all. No matter how many years have gone by, let the remaining ones be full of healing and happiness.
