You have tremendous insight into what happened to you. You WERE groomed by the pedophile. He took advantage of your youth and your vulnerabilities. And your mother enabled him, which makes her just as responsible. If not legally, certainly morally. She set you up for sexual abuse, then turned her back on you when you needed her the most. Blaming you is ludicrous. But for them it's easier to blame the victim than it is to admit to being responsible in any way themselves. The choices you made for yourself, the unhealthy choices after the abuse from this pedophile, stem from such a lack of self-esteem. The fact that you cared so much for him and the fact that he helped you feel "good" about yourself is so common among abuse victims, Meghan. Your vulnerability and lack of self-esteem right from the start made you that much more appealing to him. Pedophiles look for such characteristics in their victims because they know they can not only groom them, but that they will likely keep the secret. Pedophiles take full advantage of all of the self-esteem issues of their victims because it helps them get away with their sick and disgusting tastes. In all likelihood, he was also abusing his daughter, as well as others, since pedophiles don't stop abusing until they're made to stop. I comment and applaud that you are going to the authorities. You were not to blame for what he did to you. He had all the power and he misused that power in a vile way. And when you need support, don't turn to men who don't respect you, turn to people who really and truly care about you. You are so worthy of that. I send you love, light and healing energy, Meghan. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

You are amazing (to me)
by: New Me

I'm really sorry that happened to you. It litterly breaks my heart :( But you are finally taking the first big step to overcome everything you've been through and to begin the healing process. You are a very strong person, if that were me I wouldn't have been able to overcome it. I'm sorry I have no idea what to say I'm only 17, but I just felt the need to leave a comment. Please just remember Jesus loves you and stay strong. God bless you.
