There is no erasing memories. One can only hope to gain perspective, and in that perspective, live one's life moving forward. Remember this: the molestation is over and done with, except in your mind. You have re-lived the memory of the sexual abuse many more times than it ever happened, and your body doesn't know the difference. But you can choose to see, and thus react to those memories in a different way. You can't change the past, nor can you change how you feel. You can, however, choose to think differently about what happened to you, and thus change how you feel, which in turn will change how you act. Consider the work of Byron Katie or Colin Tipping. Both use similar methods to get you to see things in your Past in a way that may be helpful to you in the Present moment, providing you're prepared to keep an open mind. Their methods can also help you deal with the feelings of betrayal and abandonment you still have with your parents, especially your father. Just don't blame yourself. What happened wasn't your fault, and will never be your fault. You didn't tell because of fear of not being believed and other fears as well. None of that makes any of this your fault. I send you love, light and positive energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
