Its confused. Nobody really knows what I've been through. The whole idea of me being hurt, touched , or assaulted was something that I wish I can forget. But it always comes back & so does that monster. His my mom's brother. (I dare not call him, uncle) I hate him. I haven't even told my mom or any of them the. He hasn't hurt me ever since I was little but I'm frighten of him. He lives with us, in a different room though.
But the thing is I don't why I'm scared to tell my mom? She's the one I tell when I'm down. But there's those times when I get depressed about abuse that i don't even say anything.

Its normal to feel like you cant talk about it, the nature of the abuse makes it hard for the victim to say anything about it. I didn't tell anyone about what happened to me for a really long time. It sounds like you have a kind understanding mother, if you tell her I'm sure she will stick up for you. There are many ways for you to go about telling her that maybe easier then saying it to her face. You could write her a note and put it somewhere she will find it. Or you could tell a school counsler and have her tell your mom. Either way, its probably best that you tell someone about it.

"Setting boundaries is not a more sophisticated way of manipulation - although some people will say they are setting boundaries, when in fact they are attempting to manipulate. The difference between setting a boundary in a healthy way and manipulating is: when we set a boundary we let go of the outcome."

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am Human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody else does
