Re: Is it weird I never told anyone? - December 8th 2016, 12:05 PM

It's not weird at all. I have only just started opening up to close friends and my counsellor about the abuse that I went through in childhood. Then again, I have never physically spoken about it...just typed it.

I think everyone has their own reasons for not telling. It can be a nerve wracking thing to open up about it, and naturally you are going to feel vulnerable, something that many people try to avoid. You may also worry about what others might think or say, or whether you are to blame etc. One of things that I have realised is that when you actually talk about things, it may make it seem more real. And naturally, that can seem scary too.

At the same time, I think it's good to open up at your own pace. So it doesn't matter how long it took for you to talk about it, just as long as you feel safe and comfortable with the person you are telling.
