What Happened? - December 29th 2009, 06:06 AM

ok Guys when I was younger my 'best friend' she was really bad and stuff, did things like got in trouble and all that. But her older brother, well I was like 5 6 or 7 Im not sure, Im only 12 year and recently I just rremembered it.

He used to touch me in places and said to me and his sister we were playing 'spys' he'd take me to a private place and kiss me. I don't know if he kisssed his sister, doubt it though.
He would hold my hand and rub my butt smetimes and sometimes when I slept over at theirs I would wake up in bed and he'd spontaneously be there beside me.

I didn't understand because there faamily bady mislead me.
he said 'I was his girl friend' when I came round at there house. And that he had 'other girl friends' at school.

I don't understand....I don't feel anything for it. I don't really know If I do or not. But when I think over it I don't feel dirty or scared. Even though I'm shaking right now when I'm writing this.

I still really don't understand If it really was sexual abuse he was like 13 or 14. I don't know...

Was I molested Im not sure about anything. Case when people are sexually abused and everything they usually never get over it....So whats wrong with me? was it because It was years ago? I don't know.

Please help.

Hey there hun. First off I just want to tell you that whatever feelings you are having or not having about what happened is perfectly okay. Everyone reacts differently to situations and there is nothing wrong with you.

He shouldn't have touched you and it is abuse, but I think the most important thing is how you feel and not labeling what happened. If you are doing okay handling things and you don't feel as if you were hurt, then I would leave it at that. There may come a time when you start to feel differently or maybe you will be lucky enough to never feel the hurt, shame, etc. that many abuse victims feel. I hope you are that lucky.

It sounds like you may be confused about how you feel, and if so, I really think it would help you a lot to talk with someone like a counselor. It feels nice to be able to get things out and a therapist is trained to help you work through things like this.

I hope you are doing okay right now. Take care of yourself and please pm me if you need to talk.
<3 Emily
