Sugar Ray Leonard outspoken about being sexually abused

Sugar Ray Leonard bravely shared his experience with being molested by more than one person. These were people whom he trusted. As a result of trying to drown his memories he began to drink too much, and put himself into alcohol anonymous following a show taping with Regis and Kelly.

After watching this video I had a few thoughts:

  • He’s vowed to speak out about his own experiences however this is new, and he is still working through his process even on camera.
  • This has not become a study for him. He has his personal experience but we should know that his speaking is raw. I believe this serves as an advantage to those who are healing from child sexual abuse
  • I like that he talked about how he beat himself up for years, until he realized that he was not in control of others choices.

For someone who is trying to find the strength within to overcome abuse, and to break their silence this may be a helpful watch.
