When I was 15 years old, I was raped by uncle and he was the first man that slept with me; meaning he deflowered me. Not until 2 months after did I realize that I was pregnant. During those periods, I always saw my period and so it was difficult for me to know I was pregnant. To cut the long story short, the baby died in my womb without me knowing and it took about 1 month for me to know I was carrying a dead baby because of the incessant pain I had on the left side of my stomach.
The doctors operated me and brought out the dead baby. Till date, no one in my family knows it was my uncle that raped me and got me pregnant. I cursed him after that and each time he tried to call me I ignore his calls. It has been very difficult for me since then to let go of that experience. I want to forgive him, but each time I think of that experience I hate him all the more. I really want to forgive him but don’t know how to go about it.
How do I forgive someone who has caused me that much pain? Please I really really need your comments. I’m desperate
