  1. I happened to turn on your radio show almost closing time. You had a guest and you talked about sexual abuse. I am 68 years old male, I was born in the Philippines and was able to immigrate in late ‘72. I was abuse at the age of 11 and my predator who is my oldest brother 3 years older. He touched me every time in bed asleep. They went on for 7 years or maybe more.

    A day or 2 after the abuse I and my older brother had an argument, I burst out of temper and took an 8 in. kitchen knife and point it in the middle of my chest. My first attempted suicide.

    In January ‘06 he send me an email with scriptures and at the end of it asking for some legal document for me to sign. Those inevitable moments came back to me. I did not communicate with him a couple of months after. I then again received another email asking for the legal documents, but that time he added brother in it.

    I replied, told him that I hated that word and not to ever mention that it ever again. 2 weeks later I received the same email. Then I told him what of what he did to me and where he will end up to what he did to me, this life and the next. Our communication stopped there.

    my other brother also received the same emails. Our sister also asked and wanted those documents too. I send her a message to tell our oldest brother to stop using brother to me and to our other brother. She replied and again asking for the documents. Our attachment that April with our brother and youngest sister ended. They never got the documents they asked for.

    I started researching in the website about legal matters of what I do to what our brother did to me. And by the there were other illegal, criminal things that our brother and sister did that I found about that year. I and my older brother have to dealt with in court.

    my wife disagreed to what we will do even up to this time. I tried to commit suicide 2 more times and thoughts of before. I am afraid of what I might do to myself in times to come. I went to Foundation of Peace seminary for the abused last year. I do not know how to get my wife to just not to agree but the benefits to my psychological and emotional dilemma?

    I was institutionalized 4 times. Thoughts of and attempts to commit suicide I believe are signs of a psychologically imbalance person. The things I wanted to do wether I will be successful or not will greatly help my psychological and emotional dilemmas.

    I would not want to do these things for my wellness but for my brother and sister to realize for the wrong and evil things they have done especially our oldest brother. They denied all their wrong-doings. I need inspiration and advice to how I can convince my wife? Thank you. God bless.

  2. Dear Adrian, I have had a similar life of being hurt and abused by people I trusted, however my abuse was physical and emotional. The physical abuse ended when I got married, but the emotional abuse continued until three years ago. I am now 68 yrs. old. I, like you prayed that my abusers would one day admit, or realize their abuse, and express sorrow and ask for my forgiveness. That never happened, and you should not expect it. I changed when I asked God to truly help ME to forgive them. That’s what you have to do. God will take care of your abusers, and he wants to take care of you. Be like Jesus, who forgave us all, who died for all of us, even when we didn’t know we needed forgiveness. Keep praying for the ability to forgive. Accept that you will never hear the “I’m sorry” that you want to hear. What you need is the strength to forgive, when they don’t deserve your forgiveness, but neither do we deserve God’s forgiveness, and yet we got it. It is hard to do, but you can do it with God. Also, the Blessed Mother is a great help. At first, when you say you want to be able to forgive, it will seem like an possible task
    But, trust me, you will one day be asking God to forgive them, the way that you have. If we want to be forgiven, we have to forgive. Trust God. You will be healed, when you forgive. ❤️
