I was abused as a pre-teen/teenager. I only recently started dealing with my past. I've been terrified to seek therapy, but I thought this would be a good place to start. I feel bad that I never told anyone about what was happening to me when it was going on, which has left me with guilt, shame, and feeling like it was my fault.

Anyway, I don't want to share too much right now, just wanted to introduce myself. My trauma has left me feeling stuck in life and I really want to move forward and live a life filled with joy and love. Most of all, self-love.

Hi LunarEclipse,

Welcome to AS. I am very sorry for the trauma you have experienced. No one has the right to hurt another like this. You have found a supportive site tho. Do know how you reacted and how you feel is unfortunately normal. Many of us often don't reveal what has happened and most of us feel some sort of blame...which is unwarranted. No survivor deserves or is responsible for another hurting us so. It is wrong on their part, not yours. It does take great courage to reach out and I'm hoping this is your first step forward in this healing journey. Do know, as well, what you share and when you share is up to you, no pressure. I wish you the best.
