The haunting that you continue to experience, in part, is as a result of the guilt you still feel for not fighting him off. But you could never have fought him off. He had all the control and power. And the fact is you were a little girl. You were vulnerable, and he used that vulnerability against you. Not to mention that the touch may well have felt good. That's perfectly normal. It doesn't change the fact that you were abused. Add to that what you saw him do to your mother, called witnessing has left you even more haunted because you were helpless to do anything about it. The trauma of this type of emotional abuse can leave the deepest scars. My suggestion is that you see what happened with new eyes, a different perspective. The body does not know the difference between experiencing abuse in the moment and remembering it. So it's important to find a new way to look at what happened. See it as a way to be purposeful. What you experienced can help someone else who also went through it. You are now very powerful, Ellie-may. More than you realize. And strong. Very strong. Lean on that strength. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
