The first thing I must say to you is that all that has happened is NOT your fault. And it will NEVER be your fault. When others say it is, they either don't understand the truth or they refuse to accept the truth. But in your heart of heart, you must realize that fault is ALWAYS on the shoulders of the abuser or offender because the abuser or offender CHOOSES to abuse or offend. Child are never ever to blame. Always remember that. I also sympathize with you seemingly desperate situation. From this part of the world, all I can offer is my site for you to be heard. That, and the suggestion that you turn to whatever resources are available to you where you live. You've taken a huge first step sharing your story here. Just know that you are worthy of dignity and respect; and that you'll always get that here on this site. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

The Horror
by: Anonymous

Elena, I can't believe that your parents would abandon you to the so-called care of that sick monster of a brother and even allow him to beat and berate you everyday...how dare they! Shame on them for running away from you instead of protecting you from that beast! I guess they must've also abused him by teaching him to be antisocial towards you. If he didn't want to be there, he should've had the courage to leave instead of abusing you. The path that he and your parents chose is inexcusable. Oh, and you are not to blame; they are to blame because abusers choose to abuse. You were the child; they were the adults; they had all the power and they only misused it over you, so the sooner you tell, the better. Please tell someone you really trust and keep telling until he/she will finally listen to you and help you. You can also try talking to your grandma too.

I speak about my story and I feel better. I have a psychotherapist who guide me through all of this and help me to learn how to love myself more. Today I love myself, really :) I visit psychodrama group witch also helps me to get through, but I find ways to share my story and my emotions cause sometimes it's really hard for me to stand on my feet. I'm doing all of this for my best. In some way I believe that I'll find my peace and live in harmony with myself. Thank you for everything.

Thanks for your story

Knowing that someone else is feeling the same thing is great to know. Im 18 years old and I just can't live with the pain. Thanks. It really does help.
