Tisha Campbell-Martin Reveals She Was Raped At Only 3-Years-Old
Our respect for actress Tisha Campbell-Martin has grown tenfold since learning that she overcame a serious childhood trauma that she never shared publicly before.
Here is a look from a recently taped segment at “The Daily Helpline,” where actress Tisha Campbell-Martin opens up publicly for the first time about being raped as a child. She gives advice to a young woman on the show who went through a similar incident. Below is an excerpt of Tisha’s heartfelt and powerful words.
“You can no longer be a victim, you have to be victorious at this point. You can’t play the victim because at this point I’m not saying this to put you down or anything. What I’m saying is that he is winning, and you are allowing him to win. You are making a conscious decision to harm yourself to hurt yourself and allow this person to still have dominion over your life. You can’t do that anymore.”
“The reason why I can absolutely say this to you without judgement or anything else and this is the first time I ever said this on camera in front of millions national – people is that I to have been a victim of the same thing. When I was three I was raped, by an older person. Now I knew as a child I did nothing wrong and that this wasn’t my fault but I found forgiveness in the guilt that I might’ve had.”
What a brave admission to make. We’re sure that Tisha’s revelation will help so many young people who have experienced similar horrors. Kudos for her for sharing what she had to overcome.
