The Human Aspect of Siv Anne

I lost my father at the age of 8 and was then abused by a family member. I didn’t know better but to blame myself. My mother did her best to keep the family afloat and I felt it was only right that I did my part too. As I result, I suppressed my traumas and was stuck carrying the burden of loneliness for 30 years.
