Child abuse casts a shadow the length of a lifetime. While the bruises of the body fade in time, the scars of child abuse never fade. Children are never the same again after an abuser has entered their lives, they loose not only the innocence of childhood, but also the chance at a normal future. One cannot erase the memories of abuse, they live in conscious and the subconscious, invading every aspect of ones life. Child abuse victims are given a life sentence, forced to live in the shadows of their abusers. 1 in 6 men @1in6org
#bodypositivity It means I get to love myself, even when I feel no one else does. It means I can look in the mirror and go, 'I am hot, I totally would have sex with me.' For me, it also means I get to love the person I am now and the one I want to become.
