You don't ever have to say "sorry" for not expressing more or for feeling uncomfortable. The fact that you've reached out here tells me you're beginning to walk a path of healing; and that's a very good thing. When we keep what is troubling us buried deep inside, all the feelings and emotions fight to escape. Feelings aren't "wrong"; they just are. You were violated by a man you trusted, the man who was responsible for keeping you safe from harm. He betrayed and abandoned you at the most vulnerable time in your life. And now you are no longer that vulnerable little girl. You have the power in your life to rise up out of the depths and bring meaning to what you endured. You CAN turn your pain into power. Remember, you are no longer being abused...except in your thoughts. And though you cannot change how you feel, you CAN change how you THINK, which automatically changes how your feel, which changes how you act. You are very strong, April, even though you may not see it yet. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Not alone

Never say your sorry for feeling uncomfortable. You have every right to feel that way. That should have never ever happened to you. Know that your not alone in the world.

Abuse from family confuses us. It's ok to love them because they're what we know and it's ok to hate what they did.
It's also ok to cut ties with family if that's what's necessary for you someday. Point is, our family may do horrible things, but it doesn't make us who WE are.

Be kind to you. :)

Thank you all so much for your wonderful comments. I've always thought for the longest of time that I was alone and no one understood how I felt.

I used to think that there was something wrong with me and I wasn't supposed to feel that way about my father.
