"I don’t want to mention the person’s name – it wasn’t my real father – but somebody hurt my mom and me, I had to deal with that from seven all the way to 13. It affected me, especially (my behaviour) towards women – I treat them differently. I don’t want to put a woman through the same thing that person put my mom through. I was scared and timid when I was little. I used to pee in my bed… I think it was me being nervous, and scared to get up (out of bed) and see what was going on. My mom used to try and hide it from me and my sister, but we knew. Anybody that’s going through it, just try to deal with it, talk it out."

What a terrible thing to have happen to someone. I applaud Chris for being so open about something so personal. Usually the quotes I pick for Quote of the Day are sarcastically funny, but I had to share this with you because I feel it’s a message that needs to get out there. Click here or here for help.
