What hurts me is that their are people that know about such abuses toward children but do nothing. Those bother me the most. Sexual abuse haunts you for life. When you're a child and someone continues to touch you in places that make you hurt then and thereafter . . .you feel as if maybe somehow you asked for that. Most often this abuse is done by someone you admire or think you are safe with. But, it hurts even more when you finally get the courage to tell another grown up that you feel will help you but they do nothing.
We live in a cruel world and children need to be protected more. Something as simple as paying attention is all that's needed.
There are very few people that I trust . . .I grew up knowing that there was no one I could trust. Now I'm at a point were I just get by without having to trust.
Yes . . .I was abused. For years.
