Monica Lewinsky was 'traumatized' by the Clinton sex scandal

The 49-year-old TV personality was in a relationship with the former US president between 1995 and 1997.

She shared that her mood changed when she realized the scandal was engulfing her life. 

It has been evolving and changing over the past few years since 2014.

"Prior to that I entered a different, more challenging period than 1998. 

After everything subsided and this trauma lasted for one year, I found myself in this new environment, trying to figure out how to move forward. 

What was the best way to get on a developmental track as a young lady?

In 1998, the House of Representatives impeached Clinton. 

Although he was later acquitted of all impeachment allegations of perjury, 

obstruction of justice, and other charges, the scandal did long-term damage to Lewinsky's reputation.
