[Advice Needed] I was defiled by my own brother! How do I move on?

I don’t really know how to start. I have this bottled up in me since I was a teenager. And it took me all the courage to write this – I was raped by my own brother when I was at age 12. This continued for six years until I gained admission to the polytechnic and had to leave the house. I hate my brother so much and the male folks generally. I want to heal, but I don’t know how!

Dear Ngo,
Its a pity you went through this trauma. You have successfully passed the first stage of healing – opening up! The next you should do now is forgiveness, total forgiveness! Its not an easy task but you can accomplish that if you make up your mind. Let go of the past! It can’t be controlled, but you can change the present and the future! Plus you need to know that men are not the same, soon you would get a good man who would value you! I wish you a total healing!

With Love,
