Understandable anger...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Maddy, I'm so sorry that your mother didn't believe you when you told. But you need to talk to someone about what has happened to you. I don't know if there are any resources for you where you live. If there are, I strongly urge you to use them. You need to talk to some kind of counsellor so that you can deal with the anger you are feeling about what this man did to you. And also to deal with your self-harming tendencies. You didn't deserve to be molested. You deserve help now that you have been, especially given the understandable stage of anger you are feeling. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. If you feel the need, you are welcome to submit more stories. I'll post them all on the same page.

I am beautiful, I just am, Always believe in yourself
by: maurice

Oh Maddy, my heart goes out to you, Thank you for being so brave and courageous in writing your story on Darlene's site. It is you stepping stone to being free in your own mind, to being true to yourself, a cry for help and advice which Darlene has given you in her comment. Please read it, if you can act on her loving words to you from her heart. Your 20 years of age, highly intelligent, you articulated what happened to you from deep within your belly button and heart. Your brother and his friend were very bold, very naughty, very sure of what he was going to you in the game they choose to play knowing you were the innocent, vunerable girl in the game. They took advantage of you. You are not to blame for any of it. He was the stronger one when he pinned you down and did what he did. Your brother should have stopped him molesting you/abusing you. Maddy you did not deserve to be treated like that. Heed Darlene's words and get help. Slowly build up your Self Esteem. I am beautiful, My body is mine and it is beautiful and I am going to love it so it keeps it beauty. I will not disfigure it any more by stop self harming it. Maddy get a big mirror and just love the me that is looking back at you. I can. I will, I must, because my dignity and self worth are sacred to me now at 20 years of age. caress and hug your body back to it's original beauty before that man molested it and made me feel dirty. I know you have the courage to love it and yourself. Stay strong and you will succeed. I can, I will, I must, just for me. Maddy live well, laugh alot, love much beginning with yourself. Get out and about mixing with others your own age in sporting or cultural groups in your area. Be active, be alive, Have a healthy mind in a healthy body. Show off that beautiful body of yours with other females in a team situation. Then you will begin to have hope and trust in yourself as you live each day at a time. Always believe in yourself, beginning with Darlene's advice to you, she has a woman's heart for her many visitors but she also is a professional in the advice she gives each one personally. She's worth paying attention to. It is up to you Maddy, be pro-active in getting help.
