I need help. Only one person knows my story, and I don't want those close to me to find out. The one person who knows told me to tell my parents what happened and press charges, or he would. What do I do?

I'd tell your parents and press charges.

Hi, my name is Stephanie, I was abused by my older brother when i was 6. I am now 37 years old and going to a therapist. I held that secret for over 30 years and the consequences of that are haunting me now. I always figured i would get in trouble or hurt someone if i told. the only person it ended up hurting was me. Now, i have 3 kids and i tell them that NO MATTER what....always tell me. Your parents deserve to know. Whether or not they press charges is up to your parents. your not a fault, please remember that. Have the courage to stand up for yourself, you can do it.
hugs!!
