Talking To MomPosted: September 19, 2011
My mom sat down with me and my boyfriend today and asked me if I felt strong enough to publically speak about my sexual molestation. I wouldn’t have survived everything that happened to me if I weren’t strong. I need to find my voice and speaking out helps me express my feelings. For too long I’ve suffered because people judged my behavior when I turned to drugs to numb myself but I didn’t know any other way.
Now I go to AA and NA meetings regularly. I have a really strong boyfriend who supports me in speaking out. It made me feel good when he said to my mom, “I’m a hundred percent behind Zoie. Child molester’s should be punished. Justice has not been served. She needs to stand up to this injustice.”
