What happened when I broke the silence

Is incest the last taboo?

This post is about what happened when I told my mother about the incest.

There’s a part of this recording where I say that disclosure is harder for victims of incest. But please–all you survivors out there–I’m absolutely not getting into a competition of misery. It’s my very clumsy way of saying that, perhaps, there’s more of a taboo around incest than sexual abuse of children from adults other than caregivers. And that taboo perhaps brings with it a different range of emotions.

Tell me what you think: is incest the last taboo?

 

 

All of you take care and God bless xxx
