Last year I wrote a number of articles on Medium.com about relationships, sexuality and my personal experiences. That left me very open and vulnerable. I wrote one very powerful article about extremely traumatic experiences in my childhood and it went semi-viral, reaching an audience of tens of thousands. My writing helped a lot of people, despite laying my heart and soul bare for so many to see.
As a direct result of the articles, I experienced another traumatic event, that I subsequently wrote one last article about. I eventually pulled all the articles down, as a somewhat selfish means of self preservation… but the damage was already done to me.
I retooled most of these articles and shared them again. If my experiences and thoughts can help others, I owe it to them. They follow in their entirety after this post.
