Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. Just so you know, it's never too late to tell. Try to get passed the fear of being either blamed or admonished for not telling sooner. You didn't tell because you were young and afraid. You might be surprised how understanding your mother really is. She will probably ask you why you didn't tell sooner, but then just tell her how scared you were and why. Always remember that you were a vulnerable child when this happened; none of it was your fault. And if you really can't talk to your mother then talk to someone else: a trusted friend, a counsellor, a church elder, someone who will listen with an understanding ear.

Have a VOICE
by: Karen W

Lakiyia, it sounds as though your mother would believe you. Even if she doesn't you have to tell someone! I waited for years to say anything and it caused me more emotional damage because I carried that "dirty little secret" around with me. NOONE has the right to touch you like that. Noone has the right to raise a finger to you. Don't carry that weight on your shoulders. As long as you don't tell, your abuser still has control over you. You took a big step in writing your story. Let someone you trust in to help you work through this.

Lakiyia, with Darlene, and three of us care about you and truly love you. Please read Darlene's comment, make your own simple understanding sens e of what she has written. Her Heartfelt words go out to you and I can assure you she has one big heart. She also know waht is the best way forward for you in what she suggests. Don't be afraid of what other might or might not think when you trust someone with what you have shared ever so bravely on Darlen'e site. Your Mother is your mother, she birthed you, The majority of mom's are aware of their childrens pain, understand their child, LOVE their child even the one's who make life difficult for them from time to time. Mother's are special, My mother reared me on her own she was a single moam with her beautiful child. Your mam will be ok when you Talk. Lakiyia if you have another whom you can really confide in then tell that person she/he may make it easier for you then to relate to your Mam. I am sure you have a friend or two who know all about your feelings then ask them to help you to tell as well. Be a big girl go tell someone.
