Just starting this thread with an excellent article I came across on Twitter today. I always find my BP rises when I read well-meaning (or perhaps not?) truisms thrown out about how our suffering made us the people we are today, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, things only someone who hasn't gone through what we have would say.

Just Stop The Universe did not Cause My Abuse For My Greater Good by survivor Mike McBride at Child Abuse Survivor

And this is where the image comes into play, because I will never accept that my abuse was anything other than some other person making the decision to abuse me. It was not about some greater purpose in my life, it was not karma, it was not a nudge from the universe, it was a criminal act conducted by another human being. End of story.

Appreciate M. McBride putting words to what I have thought and felt.
