Thank you for sharing your story and your very important message with my visitors and me. I'm so proud of you for telling. That was so brave of you. And you had a very good friend who convinced you to tell your mother. The fact that your relationship with your father changed is not your fault. Fault lies with your molester, and with your father. Your molester for choosing to molest you; your father for not being there for you in the way he needed to be there for you. Don't ever forget that.

Always Believe in YOURSELF: Stay Safe:
by: maurice

The value of a true and real friend is a blessing a gift, a jewel, golden nugget. Get my message Shelby A. That friend that helped you to tell your mam is that kind of friend. It is in the telling that abusers are found out and dealt with It took courage to tell your Mam, well done, please get real help even counselling: Talking to a therapist will benefit you Shelby. Read Darlene again, understand her words to you. They are thought provoking and helpful for you. Have a healthy mind in a healthy body, oh no I can hear many visitors say, He's off encouraging Shelby A to begin being active and alive. Get out and about with likeminded friends, school mates in team sports and cultural activities. It will make you feel good. There is safety in numbers. you'll make great friends and be caring and loving of yourself in a wholesome way. I'M SPECIAL and I LOVE ME. say that over and over again, make it your mantra. Believe it too.

im sorry it took me so long to write back!
by: Shelby A

thank you so much Maurice! your words were encouraging, I've been clean for one year now, I'm now 17, and even though me and my dad don't talk at all anymore, its not just cause of me being molested but also because I've become a strong and independent girl cause if it, and i don't take the emotional abuse he puts me through anymore either. both you and Darlene's words have helped me so much and made me grow and become a stronger and better person, i care deeply about both of you so much.
