He was frozen in time.
At the conclusion of this story, you will feel how the child feels: guilt, shame, confusion, and betrayal.
His parents were good people offering their home to family members whenever they needed it.
His uncle was having troubles with his marriage; actually, there was a divorce in the works.
Having twin beds, the man slept in his nephew’s room.
He undressed in front of the boy, confusing the boy with his requests.
It was their secret. He could not tell anyone because he felt ashamed.
From that point on, the young boy felt guilt and conflict; he experienced intense sensations.
Frozen in time, 20 years later, the young man sought ways to sexually acted out. He was powerless and continued with his compulsive activity regardless of the danger he placed himself.
Finally, having enough pain and a desire to change, he decided to take responsibility for his life now. Up till this moment, he blamed his uncle for his sexual addiction. He was only one who take charge of his life. He took steps for recovery finding a therapist and a support group.
Lesson: Men and women; sexual addiction is your problem; please do not damage a little child’s life.
Matthew 18:6King James Version (KJV)
6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
