Episode #124: My Life Now, Survivor of the Unthinkable, w/ Mary Knight

We are honored to have Mary Knight, MSW, at our table this week. “I am glad that I stayed angry as long as I did because that was what I needed. I used to call forgiveness the “F” word. Confronting abusers helped me, but only because I was careful that I had the physical safety and the emotional support that I needed when I did so. I believe the only person you need to ‘forgive’ is yourself. “
Mary survived familial human trafficking, including child pornography produced by her parents. She tells about the path she took to the great life she now has in her personal documentary “Am I Crazy? My journey to determine if my memories are true.” Knight’s memoir “My Life Now: Essays by a Child Sex Trafficking Survivor” will be available for purchase on Amazon on November 1st.
