I wasn’t sure how I was going to write this piece.
Yesterday, I went shopping in a town near where I live Romford. There was the normal hussle and bustle of any town.
There was a charity raising money for Children, the aim of the promotion was to raise awareness of child sexual abuse and the signs. Normally I’d just walk by and try and ignore them. For some reason I started to chat to the fundraiser.
She asked if I knew the signs of abuse, to my suprise I shared a bit of my story. The fact I’m a survivor of abuse and I knew the signs. I then said that children need to be educated to spot the signs and to be believed if they report anything wrong.
After some thought yesterday afternoon, I realised that people like me are needed more than ever and I feel that I should be working full time to help survivors. I feel I’m wasted working where I’m working at the moment. Maybe, I should start to think carefully about my future.
