TELL someone...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me, Bells. While I agree that enjoyable activities can help, burying what happened is not the answer. What will REALLY make a difference in your life is telling someone, and then getting the help you need to deal with the repercussions. This will haunt you until you do, Bells. Maybe not right now, but certainly in the future as you move through the different stages of your life.

please tell someone
by: Ida

I am so sorry that you are going through this, I too was a victim of child sexual abuse from the time I was 2 until I was 10, I never told anyone because I was scared. Because I did not tell anyone my abusers continued to molest my siblings. I felt this was my fault I should have said something. But I know now that it wasn't my fault, but when I finally told someone it was a weight off my young shoulders. You are still young get help why you can please.

Always believe in yourself. because you are worth it.
by: maurice

Christmas times and bells are uppermost in my mind of happy times and family times of togetherness around the world. Though it is Summertime in NZ as my friend emailed me this morning. I spent some time in Wellington so I had my Christmas dinner on the beech almost cooking it there because it was so hot. Bells, you seem to have a loving caring family especially your Mother. It is the most natural re-action for a child whi was (is) being abused not to tell a family member even. Now he is out of your life please make sure he does not abuse again by telling someone even if you find it hard to confide it to your Mommy. A counsellor a special friend whom you trust and love. there is natural help around you Bells please don't be afraid to use it. Always believe in yourself, build up your Self Esteem. begin today having a powerful mirror image of yourself. Look in that mirror the bigger, the longer one the better. See that wonderful and beautiful Me looking out. Think good wholesome positive thoughts about that me in the mirror. I am rather than I'm not, I have nice etc rather than I don't like this etc. Your beauty comes from within you so with a little effort you can shower it all over you on the outside when you look at Me in the mirror. Hi and it ain't a silly thing to be asked to do. Say I can, I will, I must because I am worth it. era go on TODAY.
