Counseling Assignment: Write a letter to your younger self

For the longest I placed blame on my younger self for my sexual abuse. Always feeling like I could have done something. My counselor noted it and asked that I write a letter to my younger self. I avoided writing the letter for some time, and decided to write it on my 37th birthday. Which in hindsight, was a major milestone, 20 years since I had spoken up about being sexually assaulted.
