I hear people from all walks of life talk about it all the time. It has silently become a part of our society. A part which we all shy away from because it is either too shameful to talk about, or somehow we believe that by shying away from discussing it, it will eventually disappear. It is the one thing that you cannot easily (or never) talk about with your best friend, sister, or even mother. Although the victims differ, the stories are usually very similar. The abuse is almost always from a close family member or friend, and its psychological effects can last a lifetime. Yes! It does have a name. We choose to call it CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE, and today, I shall narrate to you, my painful encounter with it.
I never was the type of girl who kept a diary as I didn’t believe my life experiences were worth writing about. However, one day, I found myself in need of a way to relieve myself of the pain that had been eating me from the inside.
