    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...

    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???

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
