I agree with everything you said and in regards to ‘On unburdening yourself’ and understand how monumentally hard on the soul that situation must be but I think it’s also important that OP should also understand that she has a responsibility to make sure that this slimy fuck is not still doing to others what he did to her.
Um, no. She does not have that responsibility. She is the victim. She has no moral obligation to involve herself with her victimizer whatsoever.
If she’s strong enough to grind her way through the justice system, that’s great. More power to her. Hell, if she hunts down this child molester and shoots him in the dick, I’m not gonna hold it against her.
Still, she doesn’t have to do a damn thing. It’s not on her.
