  2. Hello all,

    My name is Aaronni Miller. I am a 20 year old student, business owner, natural and survivor of molestation. At the age of 4/5 I was molested by my older sister; due to her threats of killing me I did not tell anyone. I held on to this secret for 15 years and finally, at the age of 19, let it go.

    After confessing what happened to me as a child to both my father and mother they responded coldly. They said they did not know because they did not know how to talk to me.

    I felt angry, at first, when they responded so coldly, but now I am turning my anger into my driving force and I am reaching out to woman with pasts like mine.

    Through this experience I have realized that people only do to you what you LET them do. I have taken control of my life and let God lead me in the path he sees fit. Through my tormented childhood I have learned to love, forgive and most importantly understand what it is like to black, confused, abused and 2 inches away from suicide.

    Hope this was not too heavy (lol) =)

  5. Every day I’m learning… but the ONE THING that changed my life forever? There have been many things happen in my life… mostly bad, I’m awaiting, anticipating, preparing for the good, BUT that ONE THING that stands out?

    When I was 7 my Mom killed my Dad in self-defense…. Every ounce of my life changed since then & during the past few years I have been learning how to use THAT & the rest of the chaos as positive in my life.
