You've earned that hatred. But if you hang onto that hatred it will consume you. It will take over every aspect of your life. You need help dealing with what happened to you. Please consider contacting the Scotland Hotline at 0800 022 3222 in order to talk to someone. Also, understand that your stepdad was an adult and not only knew better, but threatened you with your life if you told; your friend probably didn't know better, and was likely being sexually abused herself. This would explain her sexually intrusive behaviour. That knowledge doesn't necessarily make it any easier for you to deal with the repercussions, but understanding why it happened at all may help you process it. Please tell a trusted adult about your stepdad, someone who can help you. A professional counselor can help you deal with both. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
