I Forgave the Man Who Molested Me

Forgiveness of sexal abusers 91 People

    Every Dog Has Their Day

     My uncle sexually abused myself and two of my sisters for many years. We all suffered silently as we grew older. After 11 years, I finally came out with it in support of my sister. My sister is still a minor so authorities had to be notified. It didn't matter that so much...

    I was about to post this

    as a comment under someone else's experience, but I reconsidered. Maybe someone who reads it can help me understand why my friend needed to do what she did. I don't judge her or have any resentment, but I cannot relate... My friend confided in me that her father had molested...

    Overturned

    He molested me. He was my camp counselor, it happened. His conviction was overturned and he got to go free. I have never been free from the memories or fear. I have just found him after 25 years and don't know what to do now???

    A Little To Late To Tell Him

    I finally forgave the man that started me down the difficult road of life.  In the beginning I loved him because I though he loved me only to find out he was only using me for sex.  He was like so many others that abuse children(I was 5 1/2 when he...

    The very few people that I have told about this

    always seem to question me, baffled at how I could forgive someone who basically took my virginity away at a young age. I had to. I could not stay enraged at the man who had molested me as a child, my very own older brother. Ever since I was molested by my brother on several...

    He raped me when I was 16.

    And 2 years ago he walked in to my church. I wanted to run and hide but I knew there was a reason. I went thru a lot but 3 weeks later I was able to actually hug him and talk to him without saying I forgive you. It was very scary and hard but I was able to pull thru with Gods...

    I haven't forgiven him,

    but I don't know where else to put this. I don't understand the need to forgive. Isn't it good enough that I don't hate him and that I'm not holding a grudge? I'm not sure that I can forgive. He hasn't been part of my life in 17 years. I don't think about him often enough to...

    I wouldn't say it's forgiveness.

    I don't know what it is. he was a family member. I still see him, and til this day he denies that he did what he did.. SICK. I try not to think about it. it's like a living nightmare. I was probably 10 when it happened. and he told me not to tell anyone. I was so scared. but I...

    I literally got down on my knees and begged God to take him!  You are probably wondering what that has to do with forgiveness,  That is the point of my writing about this experience. I was my molested by my uncle when I was ten years old.  He not only took my innocence, he...
