Counselling can still help...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I'm glad to learn that talking to people has helped you. I still believe that counselling can help you further deal with the emotional trauma of the sexual and emotional abuse. A counsellor may be able to help you understand the questions of: "Why me?" and "Why can't I forget?" A counsellor can help you become a better parent in the future.

I would never ever try to kill myself for anything that has ever happened to me. I am much stronger than that. Honestly my childhood is a sad story, but it is what has made me this strong and to survive from it. I may have been the victim back then, but I am not the victim now.
I never used my childhood or past to make me suicidal or as a excuse to not go on. I have had those talks with my neices and nephews. I hope that I inspire young adults to never allow anyone to make them feel like they are not worth living. Life is a beautiful journey, you should embrace each and every single day like it were your last.
i write this because you are in the 7th grade and you speak of death and suicidal because of a life that I did not choose for myself. but the life I had is what has molded me into the woman I am today. I wish for you to look deep inside and be grateful for every breath you breathe and to never ever think of suicidal. Life is worth living, even when something such as this may tourment you. find your strength within yourself to stay positive!
