To say that you "made out" with your brother is absurd! He sexually abused and assaulted you. This is on him, not you. Don't EVER take responsibility for what HE did TO you. None of this is your fault. NONE OF IT! At 16 your brother knew exactly what he was doing, and he took advantage of you being just 8 years old, your vulnerabilities. You couldn't possibly protect yourself from a 16-year-old. Next time you see an 8-year-old, have a good look, and then maybe you'll come to realize that you were powerless. Please seek out some form of counseling for what you endured, and for the betrayal and abandonment from your mother. You didn't deserve to be sexually abused. You deserve help now that you have. And believe me, at 22, it's highly unlikely that you have overcome this. It's highly likely that you will be dealing with the repercussions at various ages and stages of your life, unless you get the help you need. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
