I remember when I changed from a child into an adult as if it was yesterday, and it wasn 't one of my fondest memories. Growing up as the middle child and the only girl I had it the hardest. I didn 't get along with any of my parents, siblings, or any family for that matter. I was painfully shy and some of the men in my family took advantage of that. I was very young the first time I was molested and when my family found out about it they either blamed me for it. So I never mentioned it again, and I grew very resentful.
