Dear Survivor, we are sorry you had to go through all you went through during the abuse. We appreciate how courageous you are to have decided to share your story with us. Kindly drop your story here in detail. Thank you.
I was actually molested thrice: once by a family member, once by the landlord’s son who was almost molesting my sister, and then once by a neighbor.
These people were all older than me. You know, growing up, with extended family members… My grand uncle’s daughter was almost putting my tiny penis into her vagina then. At each time she tried, nothing would happen. Instead, I would cry, and it happened twice so, my mom noticed the movements and started locking up my sister and me inside as she went to the market.
The second encounter was our landlord’s son who would drag me into the room and do the same thing until we left the area.
Then, the last one was the neighbor who always lured me into an uncompleted building where he had his way until I grew up to know that what he was doing is bad and I fought him. That was how I broke free from his manipulations.
I was almost rewriting those stories with other people if not for God’s interventions. I thank God I broke free from those influences because it affected my mental health as a young man growing up.
