You were raped and abandoned and you're still here; that shows how strong you really are. In that strength there is something else to understand: Victims are NEVER to blame. Period. End of story. As for why you didn't tell, victims don't tell because of fear on many levels. That doesn't make it the victim's fault. Ever. Fault always lies with the abuser because the abuser chooses to abuse. You were a child, a small child. Consider this, if you found out your daughter was abused at 6 years old, would you be likely to blame HER...probably not. Because you'd realize that at 6 years old she was incapable of protecting herself or stopping the abuse. I repeat, not telling does not mean the abuse is the fault of the victim. Victims are never to blame. Always remember that. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
