Relationship Violence Story From Hannah B

by Hannah B
(United Kingdom)

I am 13 years old a couple of months ago I was sexually assaulted by my ex boyfriend age 14. ( I was going out with him at the time) he held me down. Forced me, shouted, threatened, hit and hurt me. It was so awful this is by far the worst year of my life. He is on police bail and we are now waiting to hear from the crown court prosecution. I found out a couple of weeks ago that he was arrested for the same thing when he was 12. I am so disgusted, I felt alone and I isolated myself and harmed myself and blamed myself. When all along I wasn't alone, I shouldn't have blamed myself because it wasn't my fault I said no and no means no. When I told him to stop and pushed him he should of stopped instead of jumping forcefully back on top of me and I shouldn't have harmed myself because it doesn't make anything better and it certainly doesn't solve anything. I am a victim of sexual assault, I will not let this ruin my life. I will be successful and will turn from victim to survivor. No one deserves this and I believe that together we can fight this! Thankyou.
