Anonymous asked: I'm 15, and recently, my brother in law who's at least in his 30's got me drunk and touched me up. I have difficulty remembering it well, but I got him to stop eventually. It plays on my mind a lot and interferes with school work but I don't know how to tell anyone. I know I should, but it could really ruin the family since he has children (my nieces) and I worry slightly that I'd be resented afterwards. Any advice? Thank you very much, I'd appreciate it. :)
Yeah, you need to speak up. You will not be resented because it is not your fault. Not even a little. Not even one percent. Not even half of a percent. You were taken advantage of by someone older who you trusted, and with alcohol. That’s entirely his fault and your family will see that. You need to speak up. Tell your parents then you don’t have to tell anyone else. They’ll deal with it. Let them know you have a hard time talking about it and you don’t want to have to talk to the whole family about it. HE ruined things, not you. It doesn’t matter if he has kids. It doesn’t matter if he’s the king of Spain. He needs to be held responsible. If he cared enough about his family, he wouldn’t have done it in the first place.
