In the hopes of escaping her pain, she decided to run from home.
Sarah’s trauma caused extreme confusion and brokenness. She literally suffered from feelings of hate toward herself. Not knowing how to deal with it or what to do with those feelings, she decided running from home might be the best escape. For a moment she felt in control of her life. She felt free and thought that through running she could be free from the uncontrollable feelings.
However, like most girls in this situation, Sarah soon found herself trapped. She needed a place to stay and grabbed a hold of the first man who gave her attention. She thought he cared for her, but she has never known what it means to be cared for. He provided for her and gave her a home, but she found it would soon come at a price. She was being manipulated, then abused, and now forced to have sex with men.
