I Was Hurt By Someone I Thought I Could Trust

    Rosavella wants to share her story to spread awareness about a horrible, traumatizing experience she had as a young girl - an experience she hopes no one ever has to go through.

    When she was about five years old, her mother started to have a relationship with a man - a man she refers to as "Dan" in this story. Rosavella enjoyed spending time with Dan. He would play with her and her sister, buy them gifts and join them on vacations. At first, Dan treated Rosavella and her sister as if they were his own children, and Rosavella's mother was so happy to have found a father figure for them - a perfect family.

    Overtime, Rosavella's relationship with Dan dramatically changed. He would come into her room late at night, and he would do inappropriate things to her. He would stare at her, touch her arms and waist, and make her feel incredibly uncomfortable. But because Rosavella was so young, she believed Dan when he told her he was just tucking her in and saying goodnight.

    One specific time, Dan took Rosavella into his room. He put her on the bed and began touching her inappropriately. She screamed out and squealed so loudly that her sister ran in, but by the time she entered the room, Dan began tickling her to cover up his horrendous actions.

    Eventually, Rosavella's sister found out what Dan was really doing. Her mom was completely devastated and took Rosavella to the police station, and they soon realized that what Dan was doing was illegal. They went to trial, but because there wasn't enough evidence, Dan was able to go free.

    Rosavella's experience with abuse deeply affected her. She received counselling, but it caused her to have panic attacks and nightmares. She wishes that she had been more aware of what Dan was doing to her when she was younger. When she looks back on the past, she could say to herself, "I was hurt by someone I thought I could trust." However, she is taking a positive approach by vowing to help other people who may be going through a similar situation. She is strong and resilient, and she wants to share her story with the world to educate others.

      i’m glad our school does Assembly’s on abuse, but every time the words “sexual abuse” came up, people laugh because of the word “sexual”. it makes me so mad,but i don’t say anything because i’m not gonna be the “don’t do that, its offensive kid”.

        My dad raped me when I was very young like around when I was in 3rd grade I feel the same as the girl telling her story I get very uncomfortable around grown men guys my age don’t really freak me out unless I get a bad feeling I’ve had 2 panic attacks at work because I hate eating around other people but I think that’s because I’m self contious of my body but I work with 3 other guys that are older than me and they were on break too also eating. It took me until I was in the 8th grade to tell my mom. I told her because she crept pressuring me about why I always acted a certain way and plus she would always tell me I’m sending you to Mexico to your dad. my dad got deported to Mexico a few years later he raped me. I would always say stuff like no thanks they got all those gangs and they live in very poor conditions (I know it’s not there fault but I was just trying to make stuff up that way she wouldn’t send me) until finally I told what happened. She was sad and disappointed in him cause he was the only man that took care of me out of all the guys she’s been with that’s had kids with her. Then she comes to find out that he did that. I still have crushes on guys but I’m more into the heart that the body. I wanna tell my dads side of the family so much but I’m so scared. I saw my aunt that I hadn’t seen in 3 years the other day and she asked for my number I gave it to her and thought she wanted a way to try and talk to ME. But she gave it to my dad. He called me from Mexico and it set my anxiety off real bad. I don’t wanna tell my aunt because she just wants me to be more connected with the family I guess. I want to tell her but I’m scared. I didn’t wanna tell my mom because my dad was the o my dad out of my sisters dads that took care of me and at the time when I was young me and my mom were struggling financially as I did t want her to lose money because of me so I put up with seeing my dad for those years he was in the US. He got deported when I was in the 5h grade. I wish my aunt would want to talk to me. I wish my cousin would want to talk to me. I’m Mexican but I can’t even speak it I can only understand a little. I feel so secluded from my Mexican family I don’t really have a relationship with them. I wish I did.

                I know how you feel.

                So when I was 7 I was in a birthday party with my friends. At one point my one of my friends needed to use the bathroom and I did too. We went to the bathroom and she pulled me into a bathroom stall, turned of the lights, locked the door, and kissed me. I screamed stop but no one was in the restroom i screamed again and she said she would stop but she didn’t. I ran out of the bathroom in tears. A few days later me and my sister came to her house and she kissed us and shows us porn. I told my mom and she talked to me but she didn’ t tell her mom because she thought it wasn’ t too serious. Then I started being addicted to porn. I watched it with the girl that seduced me and she kissed me. I was so dumb so I didn’t tell my mom. 1 year later a girl that had been seduced by the girl who seduced me came to my house and kissed me. It made me watch porn more. Later on I realized it was wrong and told them to stop. They stopped and they both left forever the year after. Because of them I I had an anxiety disorder and OCD. I’m still working on it and battling with the scar of memories. That’s why I decided to talk to you guys (the only people who know). It has been years since that incident but it still hurts me. You don’t have to like this comment because all I wanted to do was share it with you guys.

                        her mom is horrible for not feeling something off with her daughter. a lot of mothers has this “mothers intuition” and they know something is wrong without it being said!
