Hello,
I'm 25 and suffered sexual abuse from the age of 4 until 15. After the birth of my son (2009), I hit rock bottom. I decided enough was enough and went to a counsellor. this is a poem (I'm not good at expressing myself) of my story from beginning to today.
I wanted to write it to show how facing your fears sooner rather than later, can let you start enjoying your life as you deserve.
My inspiration to go to counselling (which was the most difficult thing I've ever had to do) was down to 3 things, I didn't want to feel the way I felt anymore, I wanted to be around for my son and I read a lot of peoples stories online (from ladies aged 40+) who still hadn't sought help and I didn't want to feel the way I was feeling for another 15 years. So I started my journey and I'm not 100% and it took a lot to get to where I am today. But you can do it, mind over matter... anyways...

Going right back to the beginning, to my very first memory.
It wasn't a pleasant one, it scarred my whole history.
The trauma of it all led to anger, I found it difficult to control.
My life fell to pieces as I blamed it all on myself.
I thought it was all my fault and the pain took it's toll.

The pain of the past nearly killed me.
My son is the one who saved me.
I owe my future to my little man,
That's why I'm working as hard as I can.
The secret to success is to lay the past to rest.

I made the first steps to rid my life of depress, I ran and ran.
I broke free, it was the first and only decision for me.
For years I was a slave, finally felt awesomely brave.
I started to find myself, piece by piece.
Painful path I'd ever had beneath.

The pain of the past nearly killed me.
Although it's shaped me into the person I'm meant to be.
I owe my future to my little man.
That's why I'm working as hard as I can.
The secret to success is to lay the past to rest.

When I turned 24, I decided not to feel this way anymore.
I spoke in confidence, to break my silence.
I cleared my conscience to live my life with confidence.
Eventually I felt the pain lifting, the anger floating away.
I no longer needed what I thought I was searching for.

I didn't need an apology.
I didn't need answers.
I didn't need anything.
I found happiness in being able to forgive an apology I never received.

The pain of the past nearly killed me.
Wanted to take my own life but something stopped me.
I owe my future to my little man.
He's the reason I'm working as hard as I can.
The secret to success is to lay the past to rest.

I've learnt to channel my negative thoughts, the ones that take me back.
Filled my life with love and inspiration, forgot about the pain and commiseration.
Doing everything and anything to make others smile, brings me happiness on the inside.
Learnt who to trust, and trying new things is this years must.
2012 was the beginning of my life, glad I took the step.
It's improved my life for the best, but I'll never forget the rest..

The pain of the past nearly killed me.
I'm so glad you were the one who saved me.
I owe my whole future to my little man.
I'm working hard to show you my appreciation.
Where you invest your heart you invest your life.

Carpe Diem is my motto, doing everything I've ever wanted to.
Living life and not taking it for granted.
I never realised this is all I wanted.
the future is looking amazing, can't wait to show you my achievements.
No one will ever know how much I love you, except you.
You're my bestfriend, without the pain we wouldn't have success.
