Thanks is for replying. I was starting to get a bit annoyed. Just because I sought out this space to get support and it seemed like too many obstacles to get it. But thanks again. Is this a forum we can chat on?

Thank you for setting this chat room up. Today had been difficult because I am working on my relationship and come across obstacles that stem from the CSA. It’s frustrating and discouraging. Sometimes I feel like a piece of shit. And other times I feel like there is hope.

And it is tough to be vulnerable. When I do it feels like my world will crash

In my relationship my partner calls me out on things. They are a logical thinker and I’m not as much. A lot of times I talk things out to think and my partner gets upset because they don’t believe I am being truthful and in turn feels like I’m intentionally lying to them. But I will say that my partner pushes me out of my comfort zone and that helps me grown. However, when they get upset and points out the negative in me that just makes me feel like a shitty person.

At what point is it the CSA or just my personality. At heart I struggle with who I am without that childhood experience. And do I use that as a crutch or my barrier.

Hello Isee


Welcome to our friendly corner of the web

Yeah - tough one to know regarding CSA and our personality. The younger we were when CSA occurred, the more influence it has, is my understanding.

Relationship issues can be quite challenging. Glad your partner assists personal growth


Much caring
Onward to a safe community for all people in which to thrive ~ gentle hugs [if okay] ~ Fleur

I hate being vulnerable too Isee. It sucks that someone did that to all of us. I also struggle with who am I/would I be without the csa. It’s so hard when it seems to have shaped your whole world.

I hear you.
Warmly,
Flifflo
