I wrote a poem for my father and I also just recorded a video on my experience. Please watch the video if you can Wednesday at 5pm on my YouTube channel "Jasmin Solvera".
I also wanted to provide information with this video on how our body will continue to crave and look for the same pattern that was done to us. These cravings in our body look for more. I provide examples of these for what happened in my life.
I hope this will shed some light on the power of love in forgiving myself first then my molester.
On June 21,2002, James Canter, Special to CNN wrote a piece about this. I quote "One cannot choose to not be a pedophile, but one can choose t not be a child molester". He goes on to say "Pedophilia was long used as a synonym for "child molestation," and both were often seen as psychological failures of self-control. Having encountered thousands of cases, it is my experience that the pedophiles who do go on to become actual child molesters do so when they feel most desperate. Yet, much of what society does has been to increase rather than decrease their desperation.
If it is the brain's wiring that ultimately determines who will go on to develop pedophilia, can we detect it early enough to interrupt the process? Until we uncover more information, we will do more good by making easier for pedophiles to come in for help rather than force them into solitary secrecy.
