xxx I didn't until you started asking me how I could know what it's like to be raped. & I've moved past the rape & the subsequent verbal abuse from someone besides the rapist... the molestation at the hands of my babysitter - that was harder to get over, but I feel much better now. Besides, I've had to talk about this a lot with my closest friends lately. I'm pretty numb to the small twinges of sadness & heartbreak I used to feel every time I thought about these things. & I've cried a lot. But that doesn't mean that I'm a pansy, it's rather cathartic. But I picked myself up off the self-destructive path because I hated how things were turning out for me, & I refused to let myself get bogged down in a past that I didn't want to define me or the rest of my life. That's not how I wanted my life to be.
xxx Look, Fred, I just tell it how it was for me - I give you a few details to prove to you that I'm telling you something from my experience or to illustrate a point I am trying to make, or both
