I know it took me years to understand that I could accomplish just about anything, and I’m still deathly afraid of failing, even though I have before and know it’s not …

Fleury My cousin/Canada Hockey star/Abuse no more. He was brave to make documentary about all canada hockey/child abuse. many 100's of Men Harm has happened to in many countries of the globe. Remember the pope himself said "it is the normal of the generation" so yes talk it out, write it out, paint it out, I went and chopped wood for months myself. I console far more Men, than women. for I too am Poster-child of Child sexual abuse, and went to live under the bridge, with many boys at age "8"
10 of them still live outside under the bridge, but they have each others. remember u are still lovable and it was never ever your fault. u are not crazy dumb nor stupid, we are actually more intuitive persons. we both got inspired by American Men who stood up on TV  with Oprah Winfrey show.  We do never forget, but now we can help others not stay stuck in the past uglies smoke. everything happens for reasons, in it season's of time.
