I set forth on this journey to discover who I truly was and “who I wanted to be when I grew up”. I was positive and excited. Now, a family issue that occurred a little over 10 years ago is rearing its ugly head again and I’m stumped. I feel like it just happened all over again and I truly have no idea what the outcome will be.
When this incident occurred, there was a victim. Through family connections, there were others who, legally, were also considered victims. I was one. Now, the legal system has changed its mind so, here I am, stuck, trying to get those without the required authority to understand what I went through all those years ago and reliving this incident has been trying. I was considered a victim then and there is no record of that decision, so I am liable (again).
I played no part in the incident in question. I had no knowledge of it before it happened, did not participate in it nor did I knowingly allow it to occur, and once I was made aware of it, did everything I could to ensure justice would be served. I did what I thought was right and just, despite the fact that this ripped my family apart and almost cost me my marriage.
Now, for some reason, this incident (and all the emotions associated with it) has poked its head up like a meerkat searching not for danger but for weakness. This week has been an emotional roller coaster but I will not give in. I will do whatever I can legally to remedy this situation and if that does not occur, then I will look into the alternatives I have. Talk about reliving a trauma to learn to cope with it! At least no one can say my life is boring! 🙂
