I Don’t Know if I Sexually Abused Someone When I Was a Child

When I was either 6-7, I was at my mom’s friend’s house. My mom and her friend left me and the other child alone that day; I knew her we would play sometimes previously when I was at the friend’s house. I remember lifting up the girls ‘shirt that day and kissing her breast because I saw someone do it on tv and wanted to know if “that’s what sex was” I was a very curious child in all aspects not just what sex was. I only kissed the girls breast for a second or two until I got bored and stopped. S...

For the past few weeks everything seems to go down the spiral. I’ve written to you before but unfortunately I haven’t got an response. I’m writing again with some hope that you will find time to help somehow. I’ve been on vacations and during the last few days I have “switched”. Meaning that I became more angry inside, much much more angry. I’ve been watching the most violent movies that I could find, biting myself, suffocating with different objects. I became more impulsive. I’ve thrown away my...

Child Sexual Abuse

I’m having flashbacks of being involved in sexual activity from the age of around 7, the boy was 4 years older than me. I remember waking up to him touching me during a sleepover and telling me to be quiet. I didn’t know what he was doing and was too scared to say anything. This sparked a long series of events where this boy would force me to perform sexual acts, he would tell me that he would tell all my friends that I was homosexual if I didn’t perform the sexual act. Of course now I realise t...

In light of priest scandals, all faith communities must change

The Dean of Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Nathan LeRud, in the Sunday Oregonian. The Episcopal Church’s record in regard to sex abuse is far from spotless. Our priests and lay leaders have been guilty of horrible crimes, and our institution has tended to protect the powerful at the expense of their victims. Although my denomination has different structures of authority in place that have helped to mitigate against the scale of abuse other denominations have seen, this is not a moment ...

I was babysitting a child (girl) who was about 6-8 years old. We were talking and she told me that she did not like playing with a specific friend, who was also a girl, also her age.

Is My Partner a Pedophile?

I have been with my partner for four years now. I started to notice him staring at girls aged between 5 to 10 and very young teens.

Embracing Optimism Even When Life Seems Unfair

About a year ago, I entered trauma therapy. For the first time I was honest with myself about the sexual abuse I experienced as a child. It opened a floodgate and shame, disgust, resentment, and depression rushed in. I’m happy to say that today those feelings are lessened or absent completely. I started working out a lot and traded a lot of fat for muscle. Every inch of me is now shaped differently. I’m the fittest and strongest I’ve ever been in my life. And yet I’m also sick. The stress of the...
