It's emotional abuse. And your friend is wrong to keep your secret; and you're not being fair to your friend asking him/her to keep it a secret. Your friend is doing neither you nor him/her any favours by staying quiet. If you don't tell someone, nothing will change. Take your own advise and TELL. You didn't say why you can't tell your mother; if you've gone this route before and your mother either doesn't believe you or chooses to do nothing, then I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. You can visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Don't Be Afraid: Be Brave: Have the courage of your own convictions.
by: maurice

Go talk, which means telling someone of your fears, your doubts, around what that Man is doing to you. Your right, he is not respecting your dignity as an innocent, vunerable, child of your Mother. He is trying to control you indirectly by emotionally abusing you with his treatment of you. Heed Darlene's loving re-asuring words to you Aubby. Don't be afraid, I am sure you have a true friend or friends of your own age who you tell your secrets to in trust and confidence. Allow them to hold your hands and walk with you to a Teacher whom you like at school, or a school counsellor, Yes, even if you have an extended family member that you like and you trust. They will all do what is the best for you NOW Aubby. Always believe in yourself.I will, I can, I must all because I AM WORTH IT. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body, be out and about enjoying yourself with your friends taking part in sporting and cultural activities in your school or in the area that you live. You'll find it a very safe and natural environment to grow up in. Aubby be safe, stay safe, don't let anyone dis-respect you in any way, emotionally, sexually, physically. You are an intelligent girl, gifted/tallented in your own right blossom and share these with others who will benefit from them. Aubby, stand in front of the mirror and say, I'M SPECIAL, I AM GOING TO LOVE AND VALUE MYSELF SIMPLY BECAUSE I AM WORTH IT. Good on you for telling your story on Darlene Site ever so honestly. She has given you loving and empowering words to work with. She knows best Aubby she is a victim of abuse, but she has proven to herself and us all here on her site. That there is a life to be lived after abuse; She has told you that you are being emotionally abused by what you have shared. That will eat away inside you if you do not get help: Off your bottom NOW (TODAY) take action not for her sake or mine but for your own future happiness and good. Don't think twice, Act NOW
