This helped me to accept my feelings about these things: I realised that what was happening to me was not so abnormal after all.. It led, to what can be called as VALIDATION of my life and my experiences in my own eyes.
Accepting myself as a pws became easier afterwards. THIS is why we should reach out to others: Not to do good to others, but this is the only way to do good to yourself. (Because whatever you do to CURE yourself, makes you feel even more abnormal- and at war with yourself..).
Here is a real story, illustrating the same principle from USA. Very inspiring!
