I’d bargain to say that most people are terrified of talking about anything taboo. Why? The myriad of reasons are endless. For me, I think the taboo opens up a whole new world in which we get to know ourselves better, as well as others. Communication is vital.
Thank you for sharing your story and such a deep level of vulnerability. We must stop being afraid of offending someone. We cannot make all people happy. It’s impossible. Speak your truth.
