If people call you anything but your real name, then they are the ones with problems. Don't ever believe that you are somehow tainted because of what's happened to you. Nothing could be further from the truth. You've done nothing wrong. You're making choices that you believe will keep you and your family safe. But as long as you keep this secret, nothing can or will change. If you haven't already told someone about what this cousin is doing to you, tell. Talk to your parents. If they don't believe you, talk to a trust teacher or counsellor at school. Keep telling until someone does believe you. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about the abuse you are still dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. And you need to disclose the abuse.

You don't deserve to be sexually abused, Sarah. You definitely deserve help for the fact that you are being abused. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me. I send you love, light and healing energy.

dont let them get away with it
by: Anonymous

hi sarah,
im really sorry this is happening to you. when i was younger i was sexually abused too,by my stepfather.
hes a dirty man and i am still living with him,even though im now an adult,im still not able to tel mum what he did.and im in my 40,s.
so i urge you to do it now before its too late and you become too scared to tell anyone,like me.
its best you do it now rather than later.you may not be able to later on in your life.
theres nothing wrong with you i have been through the motions ect thinking i cannot have a normal life.
if you dont get rid of this abuser you may never be able to live a normal life he will always be in the background,you need to stop the rot as they say.
god luck and be brave

Tell
by: Rita M

Hi Sarah,
The first want thing I want to tell you that I am
very happy that you have told your story.That is
the first step to healing.You are smart to say
something at the age you are.Darlene is right.
Please tell someone as soon as you can,because you can get help and grow up properly with out
shame or guilt of any kind.You are not guilty now,
but sometimes when people grow up they blame them selves for everything that happened to them especially when it wasn't their fault in the first
place.If you can't tell your parents you need to
think that there is help all around you.You are not alone.The schools now a days are very helpful
and can get help for you.It used to be that children didn't matter so much.It is not like
that now.You are a prescious young girl and you really matter.Never give up.
