Learn From My Story
If you were sexually abused I encourage you to come forward and report it. I did report it, but I never followed through with trying to prosecute. If I had, then I would've felt as though I did all there was to do. Now I don't think I could live with myself if someone else was abused by him.
It's A Very Scary Step I Regret Not Taking
I was having a hard enough time as a younger adult. All I could think about was getting my act together. I just wanted to live a semi-normal life in spite if what he did to me. I wanted to go to college, travel, and make something of myself. I wanted to write and produce my songs and express myself as a way to heal from all the pain and agony. I wanted to eventually get married and have a family.
All My Dreams Are Crushed
Now I'm just trying to find some other purpose for carrying on. I missed out on a lot but I hope other men and women who've been sexually abused get the chance to live a normal life--the one I never had.
