TW: This powerful testimonial was sent to us by its creator, Natasha, about the effects that childhood sexual abuse by family members had on her – which started when she was in Pampers – and the effects of not being believed. She bravely details her journey from how she attempted to process the abuse as a child too young to understand what was happening, to her family turning their back on her when she revealed the abuse. Her newfound purpose is to share her story to help other people so they don’t kill or hurt themselves.
