This IS about your emotions; it's not about comparing to other stories...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

JLS, you did not have control or power against that sick man because you were too small, too young. Your family betrayed you when they refused to believe you, and then further betrayed you when they forced you to go face to face with him again. But you are older now. You are more mature. You DO have power and control. You have the ability to make choices for yourself. You can choose NOT to allow men to take advantage of you. You can choose to LOVE yourself enough and have respect for yourself to NOT allow yourself to be used sexually. You have not been placed on this earth to satisfy the sexual needs of men or anyone else. But YOU yourself must make the decision to stop the pattern you've been following. YOU must stop treating yourself the way everyone always has. You didn't deserve to be sexually assault by that man. You didn't deserve to not be believed by your family. You DO deserve dignity and respect. Give yourself what you've never received, JLS. Decide right here and right now that you will never again allow your body to be used. Treat yourself better than anyone ever has. You're worthy of that. You really are. But I'm not the one who needs convincing. I urge you to look into some form of counselling to help you with this, JLS. You certainly deserve that kind of help.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Oh Oh Parents why have children you cannot love or care for.?
by: maurice

JLS this is my immediate re-action from reading your true story of your abuse. The percent of mothers who bear children whom they treat badly is a very small percent but growing in today's world because of drugs/drink combinations. Underage pregnancies, mothers/partners mothers/husbands etc. cause for uncaring mothers and their co-habitants. Sadly the child is the unlucky one in the relationship because real and true love is not there as it should be, as it is is a stable relationship. Not saying that in these situation there is genuine love and care for the child. JLS your story is real for you, it was never your fault what happened. NEVER JLS. to begin your loving and healing of your self you must acknowledge this. Abuse was never our fault. JLS read Darlene's words to you. she shows real respect for your story and emphatises with you beautifully. Begin to slowly make real sense of her words to you and you will be a very positive thinking person about who you really are NOW. Great you found her site that is sure a good beginning for us all to begin our healing process of abuse. JLS think positive, act positive, be positive in all you believe good about yourself.
