Apologies: this will be dark for some of you.

I'm a M(32) from a traditional,religious south Asian family. Around the age of 9 or 10 I was sexually assaulted by a family member twice my age. I was threatened/shamed by that person to not tell anyone. I knew it was a bad thing and would bring shame to my parents per the society we lived in back in the motherland. I suppressed the memory of that assault and never told a soul. Fortunately my family moved to usa and I never had to face that (cont.)

Have any of you watched Hometown on Netflix? The Korean show? It makes me SO HAPPY. I am not one to get attached to shows but I think about this one so often. The first episode was a little weird to me but it is just such a great show it makes my heart happy. :)
