I have just joined this community in hopes in finding healing in sharing with others, hearing their stories, understanding and witnessing their pain, in order to gain further understanding of my own.
I was a victim of rape as a teenager, and recently I have been assaulted and sexually harassed by my boss. I am currently in the process or suing the company which I work for. As they mishandled the case, did a shotty investigation, refused to contact outside witnesses and other victims. In the end of their investigation I was told they couldn't verify my story, so they were keeping him and while they understand if I need to leave, if I stay, I am expected to continue working for him, directly for him. My lawyer is currently working on a settlement, as the sad reality is, they are a 90 billion $ corporation, and I am not.
I have started trying to work with a local RCC, but have not been able to get into any type of group counseling, or group experience. I feel that this is most healthy, as I do not require a therapist. I fallow a tradition which focuses on healing of the soul, and teaches empowerment and the difference between victimhood and woundedness. So I thought it would be good to join a LJ community which could help foster some of the community needs I seem to be having. that said, I am in no way looking to make this a group therapy session, just explain why I chose to join.
I would like to ask more specific questions once I get the feel of the group. So I just wanted to say hello, introduce myself and let everyone know that I am looking forward to getting to know the group.
