‘I hated my body for many years,’ Adelle Onyango on healing after rape

Media personality Adelle Onyango says she hated her body for many years.

In an Instagram post, Adelle posted a hot bikini photo and confessed that it took her many years to accept it.

She added that being a rape victim every time she looked at her body, it reminded her of the horrific ordeal that she went through.

In a past interview, Adelle said it is hard to forgive the person who raped her.

“MY REACTION KEEPS CHANGING – FROM EXTREME HATRED AND ANGER TO EXTREME FEAR. AT THE MOMENT, I THINK I WOULD BE NUMB WITH FEAR.”

“I AM SO PROUD OF THE INTENTIONAL WORK I’VE DONE TO GET TO A POINT OF LOVING MY BODY. FOR MANY YEARS I HATED IT.

I DON’T KNOW I THINK AT THE TIME PARTS OF IT REMINDED ME OF GETTING RAPED…THE SCARS.

THEN CAME ECZEMA WITH IT’S OWN SCARS AS IF TO MOCK ME. GETTING INTO A SWIMSUIT WAS JUST…A NO-NO! WHICH SUCKED BECAUSE I’VE BEEN A SWIMMER ALL MY LIFE AND I LOVED IT!

SO I HID IT – TIGHTS, LONG SLEEVES, DOUBLE SLEEVES, DON’T SWIM, THE WORKS! I HARDLY LOOKED AT IT. DIDN’T GIVE IT THE HEALTHY THINGS IT NEEDED.

FOR YEARS….YIKES!

BUT RIGHT NOW I RESPECT AND HONOUR THE DIVINITY IN THIS BODY.

IT’S CARRIED ME THROUGH BATTLEFIELDS AND CONTINUES TO DO SO TO DATE. HERE’S TO INTENTIONAL HEALING.

IT’S HARD.

IT TAKES TIME.

I’M NOT ALL THE WAY THERE.

BUT IT REALLY IS THE GATEWAY TO FREEDOM!
