    When I was younger my dad used to touch me in

    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...

    Letting Go

    What he did was wrong. It will always be wrong. I hated him for so long. He is my uncle. He should have never did this to me. One day just this year after YEARS of hate. I saw him as human. He had hit rock bottom. I let it go. I feel good about letting go of the hate. I feel like...

    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???

    I Begged For Mercy

    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...

    Is This Wrong To Feel?

    It's kind of weird but i forgive my father for what he did to me, i don't think i ever blamed him, or was mad at him for it. I don't feel however that i forgive him for physically abusing my mom and siblings. I don't know why i feel this way or if its wrong, its just how i feel.

    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...

    A Very Long Time

    I carried my hatred for the people that molested for many years.  I almost consumed me and made me look at relationships in a hardened way.  I distrusted everyone that even appeared to be trying to get close enough to have a relationship with me.  In the...

    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...

    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...

    Too many responsibilities are ignored in life. Accountability is the ring fence around society. A good father shares himself with his family.
