My worst secret.

5 years ago, i was raped by one of my dad's best friends. my parents never knew. they had a huge fight a year later, we never heard from him after that.. we just found out he's been arrested for raping and murdering a girl, and that he confessed to sexually abusing others, some before i was born.
i want to tell them the truth, but at the same time, i know it would hurt him so much to know his friend hurt his own daughter. but the pain of that day has been killing me ever since, and i need help. i can't take this any more.

  • Funny story!!

  • Do tell your parents. You are the innocent victim and you deserve the support and healing. You also should see a therapist or a counselor. The suggestion below to contact rainn.org and find a therapist is an excellent suggestion. I would encourage you to talk to your parents and they should wholeheartedly support you. This man who raped is a sick predator and deserve to be put away for life. Please do tell your parents.

    I was raped at the age of 15. I felt fear, shame, embarrassment , depression, and incredible emotional pain. Therapy, someone who only cared about me, and letting me work out my pain and thoughts, in a safe, supportive environment, is something that mad a major difference in my life.

    You are not alone. You deserve love and support and happiness. This is a secret you don't need to carry alone. Share the weight discreetly with your parents and ask them to help you get the professional support you need.

    I am so sorry you are going through this. But things will get better for you over time. Take the first step. Even talking here is a very intelligent and good start. But you need real support closer to home too. Your father needs to know that is 'friend' is really the enemy. He and your mother both need to know.

    Love & Peace to you.

  • Tell them--talking helps heal emotional pain--talk to them SOON.

  • Tell them. Don't just assume that your parents or friends can't handle something. Yes, what you have endured is awful, but you are stronger then you know and you will get through this. And suicide is never the answer, working through this is. The rape wasn't your fault. Your parents may be mad, but their anger would be at the man who did this to you. You are their primary concern. If you're not ready, that's understandable. But definitely begin talking about it. You've already confessed here, so continue the process. Contact rainn.org - they can find a therapist in your area to help. Take it one day at a time.
