"My dad didn't comfort me, he said it was my fault, my church blamed me for the experience"

Posted by on

Kaytee's experiences happened between the ages of 11 and 16.

I was molested by my dad's boss, I was wearing a T-shirt and a pair of jeans and tennis shoes. My dad didn't comfort me, he said it was my fault, my church blamed me for the experience, and at that time it felt like everything was my fault, fast forward a few years and because of this experience I gained extreme weight(being 225 lbs my freshman year) and I was depressed and had major anxiety...I felt like I was alone...alone in everything...but then I read an article online, about how women and young girls get blamed for things that aren't actually their fault and how they can get help.So I made a decision that was hard for me and I went out, I got help, and Most importantly, I decided to change my perspective of myself, and now i'm 170 lbs(and losing more weight) and i'm generally more happy with my life, and I cut out the toxic people who blamed me for something that wasn't my fault, and now, i'm here.
