#MeToo: for most of my life, I hid my sexual abuse as best I could for fear of further shame, uncomfortable reactions and yes, even attacks back on me for what I’d been through. In my head, I knew I was not alone. Virtually all women, and many men, experience some form of sexual violation in their lives. Yet I was very isolated in my silence.
Days ago (Oct 15, 2017) actress @Alyssa Milano and years before her activist @Tarana Burke, Founder of the Me Too Movement, called on us to say, “#MeToo,” if we have been victims of sexual harassment and/or sexual assault.
That’s a powerful invitation. We are invited to break our silence. All of us — together. Take a moment to breathe. Notice you can shed a layer of #MeToo hurt knowing we are breaking the silence together.
Along with friends and colleagues, I posted “Me Too” on Facebook and I’m saying it here, “#MeToo.” I feel very lucky. I did my healing work and broke the isolation a long time ago. Yet I wanted to say #MeToo again now, because I want to reach out to women and men who may want help with healing from sexual trauma.
