When I was four years old, I was molested by a 17-year-old neighbor. The molestation went on for about a year because he said I would get in trouble if I told anyone. When my family moved to a new neighborhood the abuse stopped, but by then, the emotional damage was done. As I developed into a teenager, I started hating myself - not only because of what had happened to me, but also because I thought I couldn't share my feelings with anyone. I began to connect with older people who were sexually active, using drugs and involved in criminal activities. It was only many years later that I began to get my life on the right track, with God's help. One of the ways God helped me was through Lighthouse Counseling Services.I used to think counseling was only for crazy people. When a friend recommended I call Lighthouse I thought, "I'm not crazy. Why is he giving me this information?" It took a series of panic attacks for me to finally call for an appointment. If you need a place to help you overcome past or present issues, you can reach out to the Lighthouse. It's a great place to get the proper tools to set healthy Christian boundaries for your life. They did it for me and I know they can do it for you.
