If you were sexually abused as a child, there is help for you!! You don’t need to be silent. What happened to you wasn’t your fault. If you are still living under the roof of your abuser, try to find a way out. If you are underage, you need to call police and get help. Many times pedophiles will use guilt and manipulation to convince their prey that everything is “okay” and “normal.” But you know it’s not!
My mother stood idly by letting these acts happen right under her nose. If you are like me, don’t be afraid to cut off relationships like that so you can heal. My mother was very toxic to me and it took until very recently for me to finally cut the cord. Healing takes time and patience. Some people might need therapy from a psychological professional. Some might find healing in writing, art, exercising or just talking with a loved one. Do what’s right for you. Only you can decide. I will post resources for recover in future posts.
