Should I confront?

When I was 6, I was molested by one of my 16 year old twin cousins (don’t know who) at my aunt house. He made me do things and he did things that little girls shouldn’t experience. At the time I didn’t know that I had just became a victim of incest. I thought that was suppose to happen with cousins because he made it seem harmless and consensual. He told me not to tell anyone and I didn’t until I turned 16 wich was a few months ago. I kept it a secret for 10 long years. Im afraid that if I confront my cousins about the situation that something bad will happen. What should I do?

I need someone to hear me

Leaving the TV on while I slept, preoccupying my mind with activities or media anytime I was left alone. Recently, in a very uncharacterstic move,… Read more »

She Says It Wasn’t My Fault

No names mentioned, except for my own, are the actual names of people involved. My name’s Libbie. I don’t know why I’m doing this. I guess maybe it’s because I’m a firm believer in fate, and by chance I got a flyer about this the other day. Maybe it’s because it seems less real if… Read more »
