It happened when I was about 4 or 5 years old, my godmother’s children would always take me to stay with them at their house. One of the children, the third daughter, whenever am left alone with her would insert her finger or any object she saw that could fit, into my vagina. It kept happening until I was bold enough to stop visiting them. I didn’t tell anyone because I felt they won’t believe me.
It happened again with my cousin who always visited us back then. Whenever he visited, as a big cousin, my siblings and I would always go to greet him and play with him in his room, he would carry me because I was the smallest, until everyone would have left the room then he’ll start kissing me and touching me, as little as I was, I didn’t also tell anyone as I felt they won’t believe me and I also felt in a way it was my fault those things were happening to me, like I was inviting it and I was confused. But how could I have, I didn’t even know what they were doing to me, all I know is that I always wanted to have sex since they started molesting me.
I grew up with my sexuality messed up. As a teenager, I was addicted to masturbation and I found myself in lesbianism. It happened all through my secondary school days, after secondary school I gave my life to Christ and God gave me the grace to come out of masturbation and lesbianism and I got a grip on my sexuality.
