Nettie Long - Something to say

Nettie Long

I was 3-7 years old being molested by my older cousin.

I didn’t say anything to anyone because I wasn’t being hurt in a way that was violent

to me.

It was our little secret.

When I did expose it all that was done about it was never to see that part of the family again. When I was 12 I was molested by my dad’s assistant pastor. 

Nothing was done about it then either. 

I became a very angry teenager. 

I didn’t want attention from the opposite sex.

I often felt my beauty was a curse.

I lost my identity. 

I felt like I deserved toxic relationships, after all who wants a single woman with kids.

I felt I would never be happy in life. 

Oftentimes I would ignore how people treated me. 

When I thought I married the man of my dreams, I found out I’d married a pedophile! 

I hated myself for what happened to my family!

I battled suicidal thoughts! 

My therapist helped me digest my thoughts as I was devastated. 

Realizing I needed a therapist. I was given the tools to rehabilitate my mental state & learn from my experiences. 

I am whole!
