You were 13 years old, for goodness sake. NEITHER of these incidences was your fault. None of what happened was your fault. Your vulnerabilities were taken advantage of; the guy with the money KNEW you were vulnerable, and zero-ed in on that. And don't overestimate what 13-year-old's today do and don't know. 13 going on 30 is NOT an accurate depiction of that age group. They haven't come close to maturing and understanding the consequences of their actions; that doesn't happen until about age 25. So give yourself a break. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
