Never be afraid to disclose abuse

by Hurting teen
(South Africa)

I was sexually abused by a few people who I loved and really cared for.. It was sexual, physical and emotional abuse... I'm suffering from post traumatic stress disorder up to this point. I just can't handle the pain but I already spoke to one of my closest teachers in school and I'm also seeing the school counseller.. These people all believe in God and so do I and they are all helping me in this amazing way..

Going through this pain is very hard, I feel as if its my fault that it happened, I'm still filled with so much hate for myself, hate for them, hate for him and that made me start blaming God

I feel so guilty that I had to face so much torture in this lifetime, I'm feeling lonely but somewhere deep within my heart and soul, I know very well that God lives and he's with me but I sometimes struggle to feel his presence in my life and I know that because he's love is sufficient, he loves me even if I come from an abuse situation

This is something I will never forget about but I want to be able to forgive the people who have hurt me so much.. I can't get rid of the floodwave of memories that constantly come to my mind.

It was very hard for me to talk about but I kept praying until God showed me the right person to talk to so I urge you to speak out about abuse so that the wounds may heal quicker.. The more you keep quiet, the more it eats you up inside.

DO NOT BE AFRAID, what the abuser tells you is just something to blind you..
