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.
