Annabelle - Something to say

Annabelle

I was sexually abused by the man my mom brought home to live with us (my 2 brothers & I).

He wasn’t a good man.

He abused my mom physically & mentally.

I remember her having black eyes & covering them with sunglasses throughout my childhood.

He was sick & crazy!

He started sexually abusing me around the age of 12 & would do it when my mom wasn’t home.

I would hide from him when mom would leave but he’d come knock on my bedroom door to open it.

I feared him & wish I could make myself disappear!

I finally told my mom but she didn’t believe me & chose to stay with him.

I’ve now decided to stay alone since my 2nd divorce.

I keep attracting those men that my step-dad was.

I forgave my mom, not for her but for me.

He has passed away since, but I wish I could’ve confronted him for what he did to me & all the beatings he gave my mother.
