First Time Sharer

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I've been silent for long it's good to see that others have gone through the same thing. To this day my family still doesn't believe that it happened, and I really have no one to talk to about it. I'm determined to speak about it, so I figured this was a step in the right direction.



I must say this is very new and scary for me. But i read your post and felt we shared a very similar story. For my family does not believe me and I have never tried to share my story with any one since they shut me out. I want to share my story but have no strenght to do so. I now that in some small way you will understand. I hope this first step helps you and it helps me grow and heal

Welcome to After Silence :flowers:

When I came to this site and began my healing, my family didn't know either. I eventually told my mother but still not my father. I tried to once, but he was not responsive, that is his personality. I also felt the need to speak out, and I been able to do so a bit. It was an important step in the healing process for me.

Take your time here and open up as you are ready, you have to set your own progress and do what you are comfortable with. I hope we can help you on your path.

Nicole :throb:
