I just get a bit bummed because I want to tell my mom, but I am scared and just do not want to "ruin" or make things worse because there is a lot of family stuff happening on dad's side when his father passed in March. I do, however, believe that my parents both know that I was possibly taken advantage of because there are a few memories that I have where there could be possible "signs." I always believe that parents just do not want to see or believe that it could happen to their own child which is why they turn their cheek to it and shove it under the carpet.
Like many of you, I hope that one day I can pull back that carpet and make them see it and acknowledge it. What I try to do is to acknowledge that it had happened and that I can eventually forgive not just myself, but perhaps him. I just do not want anything to do with him. I have confronted him when he did live here and all he said was that it was the past and not once, did he blame me which is why I know that he is terrified of me because he does not know if I had revealed this secret or not.
Hope you all get to know me a bit better. Each day, I try to pray-especially for the little things in life like being alive still and being blessed with many things. Hope you all accomplish your dreams and hopes and continue to stay strong <3
