You don't understand

I have read some pretty pathetic confessions. You want a confession. Live a day in my shoes.

My sister and I were home alone when two men broke in. They grabbed us and as I tried to get away one of the two struck me with a full punch to the face. I crumpled and blacked out a little.

By the time I came to they had my sister over the arm of the couch with her shorts off. Instead of rushing to help, I simply continued to pretend I was passed out. I was too scared to go help my sister as first one and the then the other violated her.

Eventually the second guy picked her up and threw her down next to me breaking her wrist. I continued to act out of it as she crawled to the phone and called 911 herself.

Everyday I have to live with the coward I am.

  • How old were you? If you were really young you can't say any other kid would have done anything differently. People can't know what goes through someone's head when something like that happens until it happens to them. Let yourself off the hook. Even if you weren't young you still shouldn't feel guilty. You were scared. Think logically, what could you really have done? I have to like with the fact that I told a family member I hated them and wished they would die. They later did die by suicide. We can't change the past. We have to accept that we're human and don't always do what we want to in terrible situations. I hope the animals that did that to you and your sister were caught.
