“Dear friend, I am writing to you because there are a few things I have been trying to get of…”
Dear friend, I am writing to you because there are a few things I have been trying to get off my chest. I hope this letter receives you well and you do not judge what I am going to tell you. When I was younger I was sexually abused by mom's boyfriend. This has been the hardest thing to express as I have suppressed this story and feelings for many years. He used to touch me when he use to shower with me. At that age, I did not realize anything was wrong. For many years, even after I always found it weird, I have never been able to tell anyone this before. This has caused many issues in my current life as I'm not able to express myself at times. It caused me to trust less and suspect more. I have wanted to open up and share my feelings about this issue but I have always been scared.
