The Apology


this is my first and only paranormal experience until now. I was born and bought up in Pune, both my parents are working so usually on Saturdays when I had holiday I had to stay alone. This experience occurs after an incident.

When I was in fourth standard, I was too young to stay alone at home so my mom dropped me at my neighbours. They were like old couple, basically parent figures. That's why I went into a trauma after I was sexually abused by the old man. I kind of lost control and no one knew about it. I started writing death threats on their wall. I just can't explain, it wasn't theatrical.

That incident left me with permanent wounds. I was scared even to go near my own dad. And after a month he died of an heart attack. I didn't cry. I hated him like no other.

I moved on with life, though. Once when I was in 9th, I was sleeping in my room and I saw him in my dreams. But it feels so real. I was choking, crying, I was coughing furiously, I wanted to open my eyes, call "papa" but couldn't. After some time, I was able to open my eyes, I was still choking and coughing furiously. All the while my dad didn't have any idea what was happening. Then again I closed them but he was still there. And I swear I remember opening my eyes. Then all he said was, "I am really sorry" and I yelled, "I hate you". After that I fell from bed and woke. Finally I could breath.

That day I went to the temple and cried alot. And I said, "I forgive you." After that moment I felt nothing towards him. You may call it just a dream or wishful thinking. But seriously you never dream when you know you're sleeping.

thank you sds what you said really means alot. You know sexual abuse is realy common espeacialy in an age where kids don't knoe what's happening to them. I dint put this incident here to portray his cruelness or my sweetness. I just did to tell people that we pay and leave. The apology came after 5 years of his death maybe for that span of time god did make him pay

azraelx- I dint mention but I had told his wife. And she termed me as a liar so I dint have the guts of telling anyone else. Now if I tell my mom she'll die of guilt thinking she was incapable of protecting me. And maybe he has already payed his price so now no bad feelings for him
P.s.- the guilty here wasn't my real father but sumone who was a father figure for me.

Dear rajeshwari, I am really sorry for what had happened to you in your tender age through the abuse of that old man. I am happy that you have grown mature enough not to hate men.

As far as the incident is concerned, I feel that perhaps he might have visited you in your dreams pleading guilty and apologising to you. Simultaneously, you must have had the sleep paralysis. This is my view of the experience.

You are great for your age, I will tell you. It is difficult to seek apology if a person has wantonly did something wrong. And it is still more great to accept that apology and forgive the person, who offended or abused you. God Bless you, rajeshwari.

Regards and respects to you.

Seriously, May that 'Papa' Rot in hell.
Good that you forgave him. As everyone has pointed out and you yourself has said, you have come out a stronger person. May god bless you for what physical and mental sufferings you had undergone.

I strongly think that Children shouldn't hold back such issues from their parents. They should inform them. Then only can the culprits be punished and the child be psychologically counseled to come to terms with what has happened.

As for me, being a parent, if anyone does that to my children, I would castrate the culprits.

It was not her father who passed away... It was the neighbour who died after a month of committing the crime reason being a heart attack. Serves him right! But she appears to be a strong girl to have forgiven him. I envy you girl!

My condolences for a lost childhood. Very intense that your father came to visit. If I read this right, it was your father who died, what ever happened to the neighbor who molested you? Sometimes you can create some healing when you explain to the past relatives why you are angry. Peace out.

Wow. I'm so sorry that happened, and I'm amazed you had the strength to forgive. I don't think I ever could forgive, if that happened to me. Hope your life continues to get better. Thank you for sharing your story. ❤

I am so sorry for what happened to you. Yes I believe the old man carried his guilt into the after life Remember I said his guilt. You have done nothing wrong I am glad you found the strength to forgive him for your own sake. He will be judged for his deeds I believe but that his his own fault Take care I am glad you got to express some of your feelings to him that is a great help in healing

Hello. I'm a guy and I'm not sure if you'll like me commenting on your story. I just want you to know that the ones who don't respect females aren't really men. I'm sorry to know what happened to you at such young age, but your father really did not deserve your hate. I'm not trying to change your ideology about men, but its just something I wanted you to know. Ignore me if I offend you in any way. Sorry in advance.
