Can you get yourself out?
by: Anonymous

Dear JP,
You wrote how you went to college, and I was wondering if you could live away from your family, or the people who've abused or are abusing you? If it is possible for you to get away from the people who are hurting you, you could then begin to find a therapist or counselor or someone who could give you the skills to work through your situation. Sometimes colleges offer counselling services, have you ever tried this? I suffer from abuse as well, and when I was a child no one listened to me. But I realized that as an adult I was able to take advice from counselling that I wouldn't have been able to use as a child. So, counselling has helped me as an adult, while it had been useless in my youth. But before counselling can help you, you need to be willing to help yourself. And, as an adult, helping yourself is something you didn't have as a child. You need to realize that you're worth your effort, you're worth getting away from abuse. You're worth getting away from abusive people. You need to realize your power to get yourself away from abusive people. Because, as an adult, it's in your power to get away and stay away from those who abuse you. And you deserve to be safe. I hope you believe this, and are able to find a safe place to live the life that you want and deserve.
