Relationship Violence Story From Lyric W

by Lyric W
(Washington, USA)

in january of 2010 i was raped by my so called boyfriend. we were both 13. i dated him because he was the cousin of my dad's girlfriend, she made me date him. not to long after he raped me he broke up with me and then harrassed me. he told his mom that i broke up with him and harrassed him and we both knew it was a lie but he kept with it while i told the truth. my dad believed me. now i have troubles talking about this and when i hear someone say rape randomly i cry. when some one says it to me i tell them not to say it and if they dont stop saying it then i try walking away and if that doesnt work then i punch them. i know i shouldnt punch them but still do. now i struggle with depression and try to fight away the feeling but never works. i have gone to the school councilor once a week last school year but that didnt help. after a while i started cutting. when i have nothing to cut with i draw x's on my arms and hands.

Thank You for reading my story.

Please get help for your anger. You're entitled to be angry, but you're not entitled to go around hurting people who say things you don't like. And you're not entitled to self-harm either. These people who bully and harass you are likely doing it on purpose in order to get a reaction out of you. Punching people is going to eventually get you into more serious trouble. Talk to the Child Help people about that too. The link is on the page that houses your child abuse story.

Regarding being sexually assaulted by your boyfriend, contact the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). They have advocates available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week who can provide crisis intervention, escape planning, information and referrals to victims or anyone calling on their behalf.
