one or, whis­per it, the loss of who you are and who you set out to be­come. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s this: use ad­ver­sity to your ad­van­tage. See it as a gift not a grind; as friend not foe. Ob­sta­cles are life’s way of throw­ing you a rope – not to trip you over, but to lift you up. By go­ing through them (or round them – be­cause that’s to­tally OK too), you will un­cover re­serves of grit you never knew you had, courage you be­lieved only oth­ers pos­sessed and strength that had been there all along but was wait­ing in the wings for the right mo­ment to step for­ward. Twohey and Kan­tor dis­cov­ered this when they fi­nally pub­lished their damn­ing piece on We­in­stein on 5th Oc­to­ber 2017. But they also dis­cov­ered some­thing else in the process: that lead­ing by ex­am­ple helped other peo­ple step for­ward with their own sto­ries of abuse at the hands of pow­er­ful giants. They pulled the first brick, but to­gether we can all help pull down the wall.
