The effects of child abuse can be life long. However, you can find the path toward healing and recovery, but you must be willing to walk it. Please consider some form of counseling to help you deal with what happened to you as a child. Circumventing those emotions and feelings will only serve to keep you imprisoned in them. Only when you allow yourself to fully experience the emotions and feelings attached to what happened to you will they release you. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

HOW DO YOU....?
by: Robert in Maryland

How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you know there is no going back. There are some things that time can NOT mend; some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold.
I ask myself this question every day because I too have been a victim of such abuse as you endured. In my situation it was my 13 year old cousin when I was 9. For years I lived with the shame and blamed myself for what happened.
There is NO return to innocence, Jason; but the blame lies with your abuser since HE is the one that violated your innocence.
It has been many decades since my abuse yet, in my mind, it lives as real as if it happened yesterday.
You must be strong and know that you have self worth, dignity and the RIGHT to live a life free of guilt. It will be a struggle but something you CAN overcome if you are determined enough. I wish you well and believe me there are many men and boys in this world who carry the same situations with them. It can be a weight that drags you down OR it can be a shield of armor to you. Hold your head high and know that YOU are the better man. Character is forged in the furnace of adversity. Despite what the perverts of the world do, they can NEVER truly break our spirits unless we allow them to.
STAY STRONG BROTHER!! You WILL overcome this.

empowering words for us to work with accept, believe and move on:
by: maurice

Robert: Much thanks: Jason he has written these most empowering words to you but I assure you I get great help from reading them too: Robert you basically put it simply and in a nutshell for Jason: But equally for the many visitors who will read it: Darlene site is sure a empowering on for us her visitors (Kind) of family human hearts speak to each other from a distance: since arriving finding this site I sure have been helped no end from ALL of Darlene's comments in each one I find a little inspiration for me to work on for myself: She sure touches our hearts knowing where her heart is coming from in what she writes: She truly is a remarkable relationship lady: She certainly evokes true feelings from our hearts regarding having been abused: Robert I sure know are where you are coming from at times: Erasing completely the innocent years of our abuse ain't possible because it happened: Even at 64 years my abuse years surfice sotimes more strongly than other tiimes but they sure do: The great thing for me is that I've been helped: I've had great and true friends too and counselling to help me let go almost immediately so that they don't dominate my true happiness now: Helping another through life is a belessing for me but more so if someone who has suffered abuse relates and trusts me with telling me: we empatise allowing each other to move the other on in our living of our life to the full: thank you Darlene: Jason: Robert

Find your reasons
by: David

Jason, It is your turn to dig deep and find your reason for life today. At the age of 11, I too suffered but at the hands a my best childhood friends father. He would visit the spare room where I stayed when I slept over at his house and rape me. Why did I still stay at my firends after this? It happened 3 times before I never stayed over again. I am now 47, was married for 20 years, which I admit ended because of my coldness in emotion caused by this childhood nightmare. None of us should have to bear this pain. I am now a more positive person, I have 4 great children, I work with underprivelleged children the last 3 years and amenjoying life a lot more. Please don't leave it as long as I did to find your reasons for enjoying life. Yes, the shocking memories are still there and vivid, but play less on my mind now that I am helping others, especially high risk children. It does get better.
