Mo Fayose On Why She Forgave A Man Who Sexually Abused Her When She Was Young


At some point in the journey to healing, many victims of abuse face the question of forgiveness.

Even though, forgiveness can be difficult, Mo Fayose said she had to forgive an abuser, who reached out to her through Facebook.

According to her, she has suffered both sexual and physical abuse growing up and they have made her mentally strong and stable.

Now, she’s happy to be sharing her story with those who need it for their sanity.

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.. .

Do have a wonderful day and week ….
