You can be SO proud of your Self for first, realizing that the healing you thought you'd done still needed work. Two, that you understand how the emotional trauma has so dramatically affected you. Three, that you are actually seeking help. You ARE worthy of a happy relationship, one in which you are treated with dignity and respect and love. And that starts with YOU, Heather. There is a reason you choose to do your psychology oral presentation on child molestation; it's your mind's way to saying "I'm ready". You are now walking the path of healing and recovery; you can be very proud of your Self for that, Heather. Stay with counselling, no matter how challenging it becomes. As you go through your sessions, allow your Self to fully and truly experience all the emotions attached to what happened to you and the betrayal and abandonment from your mother. Once you do, those painful emotions will begin to let you go. Seeking some form of counselling or therapy is one of the most loving things you can do for your Self. Always remember that you ARE worthy of dignity and respect, and that you are NOT worthy of being mistreated or used for someone elses self gratification. You are an inspiration, Heather. I send you love, light and positive energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Believe in you
by: Jill

Heather,
You do have one person in your life you can depend on, it's you. You are always there for yourself and you know yourself better than anyone. It might sound funny but it's true. This fact turned my life around when I was going through many years of traumatic childhood abuse memories. I was always looking for someone who would believe in me. All along it was me that needed to believe in me.

Believe in you because what happened to you was real and your story matters no matter what your mom or anyone else says.

Best wishes.

Your story sounds so familiar to me and the feelings that you have are exactly the way I feel. Except I am 41 and the feelings of inadequacy are still there. I am a single mother of 2 wonderful daughters and I refuse to hire a babysitter to watch them. My oldest is 12 and my youngest is 22 months. To me sex doesn't mean anything anymore. I thought that I was in love and then I find out that he is with another woman all along and they are now married-my youngest daughter's father. My oldest daughter's dad beat me and verbally and mentally abused me. Every day I deal with self esteem issues-I am not worthy, I am ugly, I am nothing. I wonder if these feelings will ever go away and most of all if they are normal. I am glad you are getting help! I wish you the best!
