Life Happens
Author: Braylee B

Chapter 5
Abused and Afraid

        There are people around the world who are being abused everyday. Mentally, physically, and sexually. When a person is abused, they become afraid. They are being threatened that if they tell, they will be beat more,or abused even worse. So they cower on their rooms, afraid of their abuser, afraid of freedom, afraid of every little sound. Afraid that every shadow is their abuser coming to attack them again. I want every person who is abused to know, you are not alone. There are thousands of people around the globe, old and young, male and female, who are facing the same problem as you.

        I want everyone to know that there is hope. You do not have to keep letting this happen to you. You have a choice. You have a future. But you need to let yourself get help. You have to tell someone about what is happening. Even though you are scared that your abuser will come after you, you need to understand that if you tell, they will have no power over you. You will be completely free. But you must tell someone. It is not something you think you are able to do because you are so terrified, but in the end, you will be better, and happier, and you can recover.

I promise things get easier, but only if you let them. Only if you take the step into stopping what is happening to you. So please, don't be afraid to get help. I know it's hard, but you must get help. Go to the police, or parent, or an adult you trust. But please, you do not have to deal with this. You do NOT have to go through this alone. There are others here for you, to help you. Take the opportunity. Get help. Be free.
