I need advice. Please Help!

My father abused me ever since I was a little girl. I protected my 6 younger siblings and took all their beatings for them. One day I left for an all day school event but when I got home my father said my baby sister was in the hospital. She had 'an accident' (but I don't believe that) and wans't expected to make it. A week later she passed away at the age of 13. Was it my fault that I wasn't there to protect her? How do I cope with all the guilt and pain I feel? I feel as if I have failed my sister but have I really have I? Please help me because I don't know what to do anymore.

First off, you need to tell someone about your father.  What he's doing is not right, you shouldn't have to go through stuff like this, parents aren't supposed to put you through stuff like this.  So please, please tell someone, I really want you and your siblings to be safe, and you want your siblings to be safe.
 
Now, it wasn't your fault you little sister died, you couldn't have done anything about it.  It's your father's fault, you really can't blame yourself for it.  You did not fail your sister, please don't blame yourself.   *Hugs Natalie*
 
I hope I helped you at least a bit.  I pray things get better for you.
 
 God bless, protect and comfort you.

You're welcome, if ever need more help or just need to rant, I'll be here to listen.  I pray things work out for you and your siblings, and that God helps you all heal.
 
God Bless and Protect You and Your Siblings.
