What was done to you is not your fault. It will never BE your fault. Period. End of story. The ones at fault are your abusers because they chose to abuse you. They were the adults; you were the child. They had all the power, and they misused that power in a way that took advantage of your youth and your vulnerabilities. You do NOT deserve to be punished because you've done absolutely nothing wrong. You are NOT weak; in fact, you're extremely strong because you survived the worst of it. Right now you're experiencing a great deal of emotional trauma as you remember and try to forget. Don't make the mistake of applying mature more adult values on things you did and didn't do as a child. No matter what, you were not, and will never be, responsible for what these pedophiles did to you. Lean on the support of your family that are there for you now. See the strength in your Self for telling and for ensuring that your father would not be in a position to be able to continue abusing you. You are SO much stronger than you are giving your Self credit for. Talk to your mother about the possibility of seeking out some form of counselling or therapy. You deserve that kind of help, Christine. Life can indeed get better and you can move forward, but you need help getting to that place. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.

Your a survivor
by: Kassy

You are strong. and you are a survivor. Ive been sexually abused before and it seems like there is no hope and you can trust again, but now im married with 3 beautiful children. Keep your head high, and get into therapy. There are alot of things you can accomplish there, like working through it and learning it never was and never will be your fault. I admire you for sharing your story. I hope everything gets better. :)
