32. I was raped when I was 17
And I've got scars on my chest and belly where he sliced me up. It was pretty brutal. But maybe it was worse for you than me? Because he was a stranger, not someone I loved and trusted.

But you have every right to be angry and feel violent towards him (just don't act on it). It can and will get better. Just keeping reminding yourself that he was just an evil fuck. But it's hard - some days I can't look at myself in the mirror without seeing me as he saw me, a thing to be used, violated and hurt.

And there are good, decent, loving, understanding men out there.And maybe that's what you need - a good, loving man who understands what you've been through. It's worth a try :)

And we aren't all evil and some of us do understand.
