First, allow me to congratulate you on putting an end to the cutting. It was one of the most self-loving things you could have done for your Self. Second, your parents were responsible for ensuring your safety. The BOTH failed you, and they set you up for other forms of abuse. When daughters do not get their needs met from their fathers, they are at a much greater risk for abuse from men as they get older, in part because they are always seeking in a man what they didn't get from their fathers. Your father set you up for sexual abuse, and so did your mother. They made you so fearful that you didn't feel safe enough to tell them. Third, it's highly likely that your cousin is still sexually abusing little girls. Consider reporting what he did to you; doing so may well save another little girl from the fate you suffered. And last, what's important now, Danielle, is that you seek out the help you need now. Please look into some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with all that you endured as a child. Your college may well have some counselling services available to you. The fact that you're going into social work is very noble. Your experiences could well help others who are going through something similar, but only when you your Self are walking the path of healing and recovery. I send you love, light and positive energy, Danielle. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Me too

Most of what you said happened to me too and I feel the exact same way. I cried while reading your story because I can remember what happened. He touched my private parts and I didn't know what to do. I'm 16 years old and I'm scared. It doesn't happen to me anymore but who do I talk to? What do I do? I can keep it in but It hurts too much.
