Your father didn't have sex WITH you, he sexually abused you. Words and what they mean can be very important when dealing with the residual effects of abuse. And it's very unusual for a pedophile to victimized only one child. You don't know what you don't know. You don't know for certain that you were the only victim of his sexual abuse. Pedophiles don't typically single a child out because they feel that child is special...of course, that's what they tell the child in order to groom them. But in reality, they say the same words to all their victims. The man was sick and twisted. He hurt and harmed you. And though you were left with the effects of his sexual abuse, you DO have the ability to make healthy choices for yourself now that you are an adult, choices you didn't necessarily have when you were a child. You're taking steps toward healthier choices now. One by making the choice to choose something better for your Self, and two, by sharing your story here. Healing is a choice; and when one makes that choice, opportunities for healing open up. Seek out any and all healing modalities that feel right to you. Speak out about what happened to you. Write, if you're so inclined. Keep a journal of positive things. Take up yoga and meditation. Choose not to drink. Choose a better and healthier life for yourself...and it starts with YOU. I send you love, light and healing energy, Wendy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
