This episode contains reflection of child abuse and domestic violence. Listen with care.

Join me as I open up about three pivotal moments throughout my life where I faced daunting challenges in the form of ogres. These encounters left me fearful and scarred, but through therapy and self-discovery, I found the strength to confront and overcome them. From betrayal to manipulation, each ogre represents a unique struggle that shaped my journey toward healing and understanding. Tune in to discover how therapy became my beacon of hope, guiding me toward resilience and empowerment.

IN THIS EPISODE:

  • [0:34] Susan asks if you have ever met your ogres, and she introduces her ogres J, D and W

  • [1:38] Susan begins by discussing her trauma inflicted by Ogre J as a young girl

  • [8:22] Susan’s second Ogre is D, who appeared while she was in college, whom she had agreed to marry but then ended their relationship

  • [18:21] Susan’s stepmother and father learn of Susan’s traumatic experience with Ogre D, and he stalks Susan for years, resulting in an episode of domestic violence

  • [22:29] Ogre W was a manipulator and sadist, which affected deeply Susan

  • [25:33] Has Susan found forgiveness toward any of her Ogre’s?

  • [27:36] Susan encourages the listener to reach out to her if you want to discuss the ogres in your life

KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • When a five or 6-year-old child is requested to engage in activities with another child, whether of the opposite or same sex, that makes them uneasy, they might not grasp the long-term implications of such experiences.

  • When confronted with a volatile individual in a dire situation, avoid assuming you can reason with them calmly. The problem wouldn't have escalated to such extremes if they were inclined to reason.

  • Therapy provides individuals with a supportive environment and professional guidance to explore and address emotional, psychological, and interpersonal challenges, ultimately fostering personal growth and well-being.

QUOTES:

“I’ve discussed this with my therapist, it was all part of keeping a secret that I'm still living with. All these years later, I do wonder about the safety and security of my friend growing up in that house with her brother, who was a troubled child and grew up to be a troubled adult. And I just hope that she was safe with him as her brother.” Susan Gibson

“I'm not ready to forgive them. I am living with these behaviors, and I live with them every day in some way, shape or another. I can say good riddance to these ogres. I can face them that way, but forgiveness, I'm not there yet. Maybe one day I will be, but I still feel the danger that they both represent in me.” Susan Gibson
