I was SA from the time I was 4 till I was 10 by and older relative who was 8 when he started abusing me and 14 when it stopped.
I was recently told that I wasn't really abused because we were both children and its normal "exploration", and that I should just let it go.
I believe I was abused and carry the scars today. My abuser threatened to hurt me if I told, he told me my family wouldn't love me if I told, he promised that if I just did it "one more time" he would stop. But
