Childhood sexual abuse – The topic is taboo, surrounded by stigma and shame. People don't often talk about childhood sexual abuse, a silent and devastating epidemic, but a staggering number of men live with the lasting effects every day.
According to reports, one in three women and one in every five men were molested as a child. People aren’t as aware that the number of men who were sexually abused is so high because these men are often so ashamed & don’t speak about it.
I’m hoping today’s guest, and his brave story, will help a lot of other men to be free. Because there ARE so many men who don’t say anything, I hope the courage of today’s guest, and in sharing his story, will help lift the pressure by talking about it. I also know by talking about it, he’ll be able to help someone else.
I want to introduce you to Owen. Owen is 24, a recent college graduate and a high school teacher. He’s engaged to be married and has an extremely bright future ahead of him! His path to get here wasn’t an easy one, but he made it!
Owen agreed to sit down with me to talk about his experience and how he made it through. His story of reinvention is a survival reinvention of the un--imaginable!
