Katelyn you are a big girl now: Adolecent: young thinking adult: You knew then your brother was wrong: You even know better now he abused you sexually by forcing himself on your innocent and vunerable mind: He knew right well it was WRONG too: Don't be fooled he is gross and he needs to be stopped: Your life is in your hands: You can be in control: you don't have to like older boys as your friends: You don't have to let them boss you or force you to abuse your beautiful body sexually or otherwise: STOP thinking negative: Darlene knows your best way forward is to tell on your brother: Get counselling: Have real friends your own age and gender: One or two real friends (girls) you can trust: talk your feelings out in truth and honesty to, who will listen, love and support you, stand by you, You are intelligent< you know rioght from wrong in a relationship: wanting older boys to be in controll or force you to do things that you know is the wrong way to build a relationship: Value and respect yourself: Love yourself and your beautiful body: Be gentle and kind to both: Look in the mirror and think and say positive things about yourself and yes your body: Hug and cuddle real love feelings into your body and into yourself: I LOVE me is worth saying: build up your Self Esteem: Have a healthy mind in a healthy body: get out and about with your friends taking part in Team Sports and you'll know the differnece in a short time: You'll make real natural friends for life: I know because that is what I have been encourageing young people to do for years: Stay safe: Be safe: don't put yourself down there are enough people who will do that ONLY if you let them: Always Believe in YOURSELF I will: I can: I must: because I am WORTH it: Tell on your brother because as Darlene rightly knows Your Brother could be taking advantage of other innocent, vunerable beautiful girls by forcing himself on them sexually and ruining their lives: He needs to be stopped: Katelyn you take CHARGE of your own DESTINY
