Not your fault...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Any family that would try to convince the sexual abuse victim that s/he should have a relationship with their molester is a family that is twisted. It is not a family that I personally would have active association with. None of what has happened is your fault. NONE OF IT! I strongly recommend some form of counselling so that you can deal with all this. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Darlene is right! You are never to blame!

K, your whole family is wrong. You are not to blame, ever. Your whole family is always to blame because they knew about your father raping you and chose to do nothing about it. They are very twisted in their own ways of thinking because they should've protected you from harm. I'm sorry about what you were forced to go through. I can relate; my "family" (if one would even want to call them that) abused me, too, and everyone outside my "family" has always loved them and would never take my side...although all I have is my maternal grandpa (I guess). Have you tried counselling? If so, that's good; just try to stay in counselling. If not, then I hope you try it because you are worth the help that you deserve. Be brave, K, and stay strong.

I am only speaking from my heart. I've too had a hard life in alot of ways. But not at the hands of my father. You have to GET ON WITH YOUR LIFE. You really do not need YOUR family. THIS IS YOUR LIFE! It took me 20 years to talk about being raped and gangrapedat 12 yrs old. I am not proud of it nor am I ashamed I DID NOTHING WRONG they did.You need to find a support group go to it and TALK-make friends with others that have been where you have been. They will understand!! Keep writing about your thoughts...but most important GET OUT THERE AND LIVE YOUR LIFE!!
