Governor Fayose’s sister, Mo Fayose, took to Facebook to write about the sexual abuse she suffered as a child. According to Mo, though the abuse rocked her sanity for some time, it however now makes her mentally strong.
Here’s what she said;
“Just looking through my memory archive, & I asked myself this question… Mo, what makes you so mentally strong & stable?
The only answer to that would be the sexual & physical abuse I sustained when I was a child… although it rocked the boat of my sanity for many years, but today, I give God the glory for giving me the strength and love to live again.
Summer 2011, one of the men that sexually abused me messaged me on Facebook & from the bottom of my heart, I forgave him. People that I tell the story to usually tell me that I should have reported him to the police….. but my answer is, will take replace the mental and emotional torture that I’ve been through???? Or of what use will it be to my life now??? Hell No!!!!
Today, am a very happy girl. I live and take each day as it come. I give unconditional love out and always ensure that I leave a beautiful footprint anywhere i go.. .. plus I get to share my story with those who are truly searching for sanity again.
Remember this fact as you go around this week, forgiveness is for you, not for the person that abused you.. .
