Actress Tisha Campbell-Martin recently appeared on “The Daily Helpline” and revealed publicly for the first time that she was raped as a child. Tisha’s admission came during a heartfelt conversation with a woman whose similar experiences continue to haunt her.
Tisha told the woman that holding on to the pain was giving the rapist control over her life.
“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,”
She said she understood what the guest was going through because she was raped at the age of three by someone older than her.
