My inbox has been overflowing with messages from so many survivors who are in deep pain from being triggered by Thursdays news that Josh Duggar molested five minor girls back in 2002 and 2003. We, like the five little girls in the Duggar case, weren't protected when we were young. Even if we reported our abuse, like the girls did, some of us were still not protected. Or worse yet, we were punished for giving voice to our abuse. All of those things tell us we weren't worth protecting. We carried that message into our childhood and it has colored many years of our adulthood. I want all of you who are triggered by this case to know you ARE worthy and you are not alone. There are many of you who are here for you and with you.
