To Name Undisclosed:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

From where I stand, you're strong and anything BUT hopeless. There is ALWAYS hope. Believe that.

This guy is bad news. He can't be trusted. He'll never be trustworthy again. He's using your vulnerabilities to get what he wants from you as a form of blackmail. And he's using your belief that you're friends against you; he is NO friend. Don't allow yourself to get trapped into believing he'll ever be your friend. He won't. He lost that privilege when he turned on you. Your vulnerabilities only work against you as long as you want to keep things secret. Don't keep anything secret. Tell tell and tell some more. But not just your friends; they can't really help you, although they can be a tremendous support. Tell a counsellor at school, a trusted teacher. Talk to your parents about what is happening. If you're in the USA, contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what this guy is doing to you. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Another resource is the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.ndvh.org/

You don't deserve to be treated this way. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. When that's not happening, you must make choices that are healthy for you; and that means telling and keeping yourself safe. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

tell
by: Carrie

It really isn't hopeless. What Darlene says is true do tell someone. You will not feel so alone. I was terrorized, molested and raped by a boy when I was between 9-14. I only wish I could have gotten the help I needed back then. If you get the help you need now, you can have a healthy happy future. Take care of you, you are worth it.
