NOT your fault and NEVER WILL BE!
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I suggest you read each and every story on this site AND the comments attached to them, Young Anonymous. Go to the following URL on this site Child Abuse: Dispelling 6 Myths About Self-Blame and re-read it over and over and over again, until you start to realize that your brother carries the blame here, not you.

I can understand feeling betrayed by your parents. After all, it was their job to protect you and keep you safe from harm. It was up to them to be there for you; and they weren't.

As for trusting your brother, what little girl wouldn't trust her older brother! There was no stupidity on your part. You were a little girl for goodness sake! Little girls need their parents. Little girls need people around them they can trust. Little girls need to be protected; that's why they need parents. And as a little girl, of course you wouldn't know what your brother was doing was bad. Of course you would look up to your older brother. You are judging yourself for needs you had as a child, needs that EVERY child has. Now what you need is some form of counselling. If your parents aren't getting you this kind of help, then they are doing you a grave disservice. You most certainly deserve that kind of help. You sure as heck DO NOT deserve to be living your life with the torment you are currently living with. Please, talk to your parents about what you are dealing with, and look into some type of counselling for yourself. You're worth it, Young Anonymous.

Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

not your fault

It's not your fault.
Your parents and brother were supposed to protect you.
