Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I must say to you, if you don't tell, this man will continue to abuse boys. He is likely STILL abusing boys. Sexual offenders to do not change their ways unless they are stopped. You have the opportunity to put an end to that by disclosing what happened to you. And don't EVER think that what happened to you was your fault; it wasn't your fault. And if your family doesn't understand that, they need to get more information about sexual child abuse.

If you don't tell your family at least tell him what he did was wrong I finally stood up to my step father I wanted to see my little sister she was living with her dad my older sister told him what you did to me was me you do that to your own daughter and i can't go into detailes about what she said but it wasn't nice.My little sister wanted me to come visit her so I did with a friend,WE STOOD UP TO HIM,told him NO he never messed with me again.There is so much healing if you tell the one who did that to you,you will not take anymore.

From Darlene to my visitors: If you are an adult then there is more safety in confrontations like the one that Anonymous has commented on, but if anyone reading the above comment is a minor, always remember that there can be great risk to confronting an abuser. If you are a minor and are considering standing up to someone who has been abusive, I don't recommend it. The abuser could cause you harm. I speak from personal experience here. Instead, tell someone who can help you.

It is really hard at first to come to the terms that I had been abused especially sexually.
My abuser is living in another city which is quite faraway.It takes aproximately 18 hours to go there.
I am thinking about talking with my abuser on the mobile phone. On the other hand, I can wait until he will come around here again.It will be better to talk face to face.
Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate it.

From Darlene: For goodness sake, stop thinking about confronting this abuser and think instead about those that he is likely STILL abusing. REPORT HIM!
