Asia: When I was younger I had a lot of anger issues, towards a certain person. I’ve been angry for a long, long time but I’ve taken anger management classes and it helped some.
BW: Who’s the certain person?
Asia: A family member.
BW: Did someone do something to you?
Asia: … my brother… he raped me.
BW: *sigh* I’m sorry, how old were you?
Asia: It started at the age of 7 and continued until the age of 10. He was 15 or 16.
BW: Did you ever tell anyone about it?
Asia: Before my mother passed, this year, I told her about it. She cried. She was sad that I didn’t believe and trust in her enough to tell her.
BW: Why do you think you didn’t tell her?
Asia: I was too scared.
BW: Where is your brother now?
Asia: I have no idea.
BW: If you could tell him something, what would you tell him?
Asia: I forgive you. I can’t stay mad at him forever. God says everything happens for a reason.
