I was discussing the subject of rape with one of my friends this week. I told her for some reason at the time that it happened, it didn't really bother me. This happened in 2007. Yeah, I was mad he forced himself on me even though I clearly said no, but I never let that situation take over my life. I've also been molested previously, too, but this doesn't stop me from finding someone to trust who will treat me right.
I've often read that so many people allow these situations to never trust someone intimately again. The way I see it, I wouldn't want to keep thinking about that situation, especially if it was a hurtful one. I guess I've been busying myself lately to not let my mind wander and let things like that bother me. I'd want to move on from it instead of building up a wall and not letting anyone in and being alone.
Luckily nothing life changing ever happened like me contracting an STD or a baby so I was able to fully move on without thinking much about it. I mean, I let so called "friends" who ditch me bother me way more than a guy I barely know raping me.
I was wondering if anyone else was raped and whether or not they were bothered by it over all? If so, please don't let that situation ruin your life if you are able to move on with no strings attached. There are people who will treat you right in the world. Don't let one person make you think everyone is like that.
You don't have to share your story if you think this is a too personal of a question.
