I’m not the only victim

I’m not the only person my abuser, abused. My parents, brothers and family are victims in a way. My parents because he betrayed there trust and lied to them. My brothers and wider family because they have had to pick the pieces up. They have had to see me at my worst. Depressed and desperate, at the end of my tether.

People just see this a one victim/survivor. Not the true implication of his actions. Actions that have changed my life.

When I disclosed to the family I wasn’t sure of the reactions. The pain my family has gone through because of this one incident. The feelings of guilt, anger and despair. I remember the reactions from all of them. The main reaction towards me was unconditional love and understanding. Even if it took time to sink in.

More soon…
