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.

  • 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 - they can find a therapist in your area to help. Take it one day at a time.
