I have many stories. One that has really been stuck with me is from when I was younger. I used to have this family as my babysitter and I would be with them everyday. I believe I was only 5 or 6 at most. The family had 4 sons and two of them were in high school. I spent several nights there bc they were like my second family. Several times the two boys would take me to their room to hangout, but would touch me inappropriately. They would rub their body against mine and claim “we are just wrestling”. They did this many times and help my arms down every time. When I would scream people would just think I was just rough-housing. I never told anyone. I grew up with these kids and had them in my life up until I was 14. There were many other scenarios with them. Some where they would try and touch me down there or look at me weird in a bathing suit.

Thank you for sharing your story. I am so sorry you had to go through this. It hurts more when its people you trust. You feel betrayed. You start to think, where did I go wrong? Or when did I ever make them feel like I wanted this attention? No one ever deserves to go through this and especially by people whom you considered family. Moving forward, it is definitely going to be a balance of being open with people, but also having your guard up due to past experiences. My advice would be to confide in the people that you trust. This doesn't mean never be open to anyone else again, but more tread lightly with people you get…
