Having survived abuse, I know much of my behavior/attitude stems from that abuse and the way it taught me to view people and the world as a whole.
Even after therapy, maturity, and healing there are times when I have to stop and say to myself that the way I'm thinking/reacting is coming from that place, not really from what I'm experiencing now. (it's hard to put into words)
I'm glad they're finally going to start addressing this. It's a shame they have to.
