Thank you Minna Von Walden. I agree here. Once I started to speak out about it I started to be able to heal those wounds.
I mentioned in my story that the “Be a Man” stigma had very often led me to ignore the pain. Soldier on put on a fake face.
About the Surviving Together, I would be happy to. I am not really sure the technical aspect of it, but I am sure I can figure it out with my google-fu.
I am planning on writing another few pieces about my struggle. I hope that I can help someone out there who might be suffering today.
It was revolutionary for me to hear such simple words as “stop putting yourself down.”
Such a simple thought, yet so far away from my befuddled mind.
Thank you as well Ms. Von Walden.
I will toss some drafts your way once I get them written.
