Hello - I am out here in cyberspace seeking help. A friend of mine learned her brother was sexually abusing her sister. It started when her sister was 7 and continued until she was in High School. Her brother (the abuser) was 20! My friend has been through counseling and decided to write her brother a letter demanding that he make amends, and tell his spouse about the abuse.

My friend sent me the letter asking for my advise. I have no experience in this, and feel afraid to respond. My husband does not know all the details but informs me to stay out of it. I want to be supportative and help my friend. What should I do....??? I know this is going to blow up and don't know if I should offer advise or stay out of it. Help please and thank you.

Sometimes, just writing the letter is enough.

Sometimes not.

If you are a close friend, sometimes that is the greatest gift a person who has been abused can have.

Trust what your gut tells you to do.

Breaking the silence is so much a part of feeling better and less victimized.

Wish I had more to offer.

Thank you for your reply. My gut tells me this person needs a friend and someone to confide in. I am just afraid to say the wrong thing as I am respectful of the harm this has caused to her family.

What your friend needs more than anything is just someone who will simply listen without judging.

It really is that simple.

You are a good friend to be so concerned as to find this site and ask for input.
