I was shielded from understanding just how wrong sexual abuse is. I knew it went against how I was taught, but had no idea just how wrong it was. Illegal? It never crossed my mind. Even though I didn't know what "he" was doing to me was against the law, I knew it wasn't right. Eventually I spoke up about it.


Listen. If you are being sexually abused, don't be afraid to speak up! Tell someone. For all you who have spoken up -You're a hero! My hat goes off to you! You are awesome and I honor you for the choice you made. You did the right thing! Don't ever doubt that! And yes, I know there are moments of doubt. I still struggle with those and probably always will. But I have to remember I didn't do this! "He" did this by his choice of actions! And you can remember that too. None of this is your fault. You are helping fix a messed up situation that someone else created.


You can do it! I am behind you, as are countless others!


Love,

Danielle
