Sharing your experience with teens and encouraging them to tell can help you turn pain into power. But first and foremost, you must stop blaming yourself. You must stop saying that you let it go on. You must stop taking responsibility for what HE did to YOU. You didn't tell because of fear on many levels. Understand that, and you'll find the path toward healing and recovery. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

I wasn't going to post this reply because it's just repeating what Darlene said, but I decided that it's something that needs to be said over and over again.


You didn't let it go on. He is the adult and you were the child. He abused his power over you to allow himself to abuse you and keep you quiet with fear. Now that it has come out, you can move on, and even use your experience to help others, like posting your story here does.

Happy Future Anonymous42 ;-)
