Hi Keisha lee,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  A child that has been sexually abused, as an adult can develop serious problem such as. A low self-esteem, an abnormal or distorted view of sex and many other problems.  It's important to get counseling from a psychotherapist, which can help in overcoming these feelings and problems.
