People’s lives interest me, particularly when they have endured complex trauma, abuse and sexual abuse in childhood. I am interested in their journey, what worked for them, what didn’t and what they have learned as a result.
I don’t compare the journeys of celebrities, to the general population, as celebrities have access to quality therapy and support, that many of us cannot afford. And whilst I am very glad for anyone who can access the best treatment – I understand these are privileges many of us cannot access.
But, I am thankful when celebrities are open and honest, and open the discussion of childhood sexual abuse, abuse, mental illness.
It is interesting reading about Ruby Rose – her openness and honesty about her past, her battle with mental health, her gender identity journey and her life in general.
