You say you have "guilt for putting your cousin's father away." It wasn't YOU who put him away; it was HIS criminal actions, and the court system that found him guilty of those crimes. The fact that you told put an end to the abuse suffered by you as well as all the other children he sexually abused. That makes you a hero in my books. You also said you don't trust men. I understand that; you've been burned badly by your great uncle's criminal actions. What I can tell you is that not all men are like this poor excuse of a man. Most men are inherently good. I know you said you've already tried counseling, but counseling can be for a very specific purpose. Try it again, this time for the purpose of understanding your fears of men and a relationship, and how to overcome them. These feelings you have about your uncle right now are tied into the feelings you have for men in general. Good luck to you, Samantha. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
