You've earned the anger and hostility and rage that you feel. You were not only abused by multiple pedophiles, you were betrayed and abandoned by your own mother. She put you at risk every day of your life, and didn't respond appropriately to all the signs you would have exhibited. You blame your Self for not speaking out before, but that's not fair to your Self. You were a child and you were afraid, mostly afraid that you wouldn't be believed. Don't apply mature adult values on what you did and didn't do as a helpless child, or even as an adolescent; you were vulnerable and lashed out which is not at all unusual under the circumstances. And no one reached out. All the people in your life failed you, Rachel. There WERE signs, unmistakable signs, yet no one stepped up to keep you safe from harm. Your mother needs help, but more importantly, YOU need help. Please reach out for some type of counselling or therapy, someone who can help you deal with all the repercussions and hostility. As much as you've earned this hostility, it will consume you and adversely affect every aspect of your life as you move through the various ages and stages of it. You're 19 now, and your brain is not yet done developing. You have so much to offer the world. Don't through it all away for the sake of the pedophiles, creeps and twisted freaks that were forced on you. You can take back your power, Rachel, but it's a conscious decision you must make. Seek out the help you need; we all need help at some point in our lives. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

It takes courage to speak out
by: sab

You have been through so much, yet your still so young, you have a big future ahead of you, and a long happy life to lead it may not feel that way at the moment, but that is because you have been abused by so many people.I find it hard to trust people, so I haven't a clue how you feel. So You'll need to get help to deal with this but you won't feel better over night, but every day will get easier, I'm sure of that. Why should you continue to feel this way because none of this was your thought, none of it. You are only 19 show these sick perverts you are better than this by putting your self first and get the help you need and deserve. I know you can do it by reading your story, I can tell how strong you are you are to still be here and tell your story now that takes a lot of courage, which means they haven't won. You will be in my prayers Rachel Just remember you deserve so much more and are worth so much more.

Hi Rachel

None of this was your fault. The adults in your life failed you. They failed all of us. You cant put adult values on decisions you made as a child.

You have so much to offer and so much to give. It is people like you that hold the key to the future, people like us that have a lifetime of experience in just a few short years, it is and will be people like you that make the difference.

What makes you so special and so much different than the others is that what you learned about all this is from real life, not just some person who studied and "read the books."

You are now on your path to helping others, and learn the ability to shine your light on others trapped that cannot see. You can make a difference, you are special the world needs you.

Best wishes on your road to healing and recovery. You have already helped others who can now read this and perhaps see and understand the signs in their own lives.
