Rissa:
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Trying to erase the memories will only serve to keep them alive in your mind. It's the burying of them that causes the haunting because they so desperately need to get out. When we deal with the emotions attached to these memories, really deal with them, only then will the memories let us go. That doesn't mean we "forget". It means they no longer control who and what we are. But it's the emotions attached to them that so many survivors desperately want to avoid. The fact is, you are not the terrible things this man called you. HE was the one with all the control and power. HE was the one who raped you. HE was the one who took advantage of your vulnerabilities. This is ALL on him, Rissa, not you. The blame falls squarely on HIS shoulders. The sooner you believe it with all your heart, the better it will be for your healing and recovery. This wasn't about you; it was about a pedophile getting sexual gratification from a little girl who had no way to protect herself. So don't ever lay the blame or guilt on yourself. I do hope you'll talk to someone about what you're going through. You can't deal with this alone. Talk to your mother. Tell her you need help. And if that isn't possible, talk to a school counsellor. Just don't keep this to yourself any longer. You deserve so much more than that in your life. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
