I was sexually abused as a child- celebrity photographer, TY Bello reveals

Celebrity photographer and singer, TY Bello was a guest on supertalented director, Kemi Adetiba's series, King Women. In the episode in which she was interviewed, TY Bello revealed she was sexually abused when she was a child and how finding salvation in Jesus Christ helped her feel better.
“I was sexually abused as a child and because of this, I felt like there was something ugly about me that made me encounter this. This was not the abuser’s fault, this was me.
I used to see other girls as flowers and I saw myself as dirty cement, hard and ugly. I never felt beautiful, I never did. Everything was wrong with me. My brows were puffy and I was hairy and it was a problem. I always attributed everything that was about me to be the reason why someone took advantage of me. I thought there was something wrong with me because if the others girls were like me, perhaps they would be dirty like me but they were flowers, they are pretty and beautiful. Nobody does that to a beautiful girl. When a friend told me about salvation, she told me old things would be passed away and all things will become new. It was as if God would wash away that cement, that stench that caused that thing to happen to me as a child. Salvation would take that away and me too I can feel like a girl. When I was growing up, I didn't feel like a girl, I felt like an impostor. The girls were innocent so I always had to behave like I was innocent and I would become a girl because I didn’t feel like a girl. So imagine my shocked when I grew up and found out that one out of every three or four girls that were in my school had been through the same thing and I could tell them the same thing… that old thing can pass away. It was a relief to find that I was not the only one and a shock that nobody talks about it. That’s why salvation worked, I had a daddy and I was going to be a flower.”

It's a good thing she came out on top despite the molestation.
She's just one in many girls whom are molested as a child.

i was also sexually abused as a child and i can still remember the gory details.I felt like committing suicide till i confided to an elderly woman who took it upon herself to counsel me for months. i feel better now but its a horrible feeling which i still remember sometimes.we need to speak more about this..。i am a survivor but so many children arent. most children are going thru hell..so sad!

Thank God for Jesus, surely old things have passed away.The lie the devil use is, I am the only one this has happened to" and we will be hiding and grieving in pain and guilt thinking "people will laugh at me if I speak out".The moment we hear others story, there is a complete relief!
Bottom line, say No to the devil, let the devil be ashamed by speaking out, it will help a great deal and it will definitely be in the past by His special grace.
Thanks to sis TY Bello , God bless your sweet spirit and heart💝!

I was too. A lot of male and female went through this. We just learn to move on and not dwell on it..
Who you go tell????

As usual, stupid people all over talking stupid things. Everyone always playing the victim card. I was molested this, i was molested that, this is a big problem in this country and many other countries, so why don't they reveal their molesters. Who molested you, open the veil person in public, but no as usual you all would protect the person's identity nd you do not see that it's not a problem you all are tolerating. Continue playing the victim card

You sound like a peadophile. Keep bringing "Jesus" to gun fights, fucking retard. Who do you think so the most molesting of children? Catholics! Christians!

Shut up. There are a lot of molested people around am sure if you check in your family you will find.
And mine came from a well respected family friend so i couldn't tell anyone. Who will believe a girl of 8 in 1999(in NIGERIA WHERE ALMOST EVERYONE THINKS ABOUT ISSUES LIKE THIS JUST AS STUPID AS YOU DO). You will know that this is wrong bt as young as i was i knew that i might nt be believed. I remember every little gory detail. If you dont have an experience like that count yourself lucky and be appreciative. But to discount some other person's/people's pain like that is ill-mannered, outrightly STUPID.
