Breaking the Silence

What happens internally when you hear the word pornography? For just a moment, pay attention to the feeling that rises up when you sit with that word. Statistically, for men – and for a growing proportion of women – the first feelings are guilt and shame. But perhaps you feel disgust, sadness, hurt or defeat – all depending on the way you’ve been impacted by porn. Sitting with these feelings helps us break the temptation to think that the problem of porn is out there somewhere in the world.
