I thought it’s all about me. It’s all my fault. Many years later, when I got the records from the institution… It was a big packet, I remember when it arrived. I started to shake.”

“Everything fell into place. I wanted to take her in my arms and tell her how sorry I was. Also, I was able to forgive myself. It had nothing to do with me,” the actor said, positing how important it is to forgive oneself in order to heal.
