If have been through a rape or sexual assault of any kind, either recently or long ago, I want to assure you that there is help and there is hope.
Rape or sexual assault not only can cause intense physical pain, but almost unbearable emotional pain, and there are many other people who can help you through your tough times.
The slogan for Rape Help.com is “There is Help…There is Hope,” and, my friend, I want you to always remember that there is help and there is hope…because it is true.
And I want you to know something else, as you begin to heal and become stronger, you will be one of the people who will be able to help other angels who need YOU.
Right now, you have support from and from friends and family who love and support you.
So reach out to them.
Do not keep the rape or sexual assault a secret, but be careful to only tell the people that you trust.
You will find great love and comfort from the people who truly care about you.
And if you have recently been raped and have not yet contacted the police, please do so. I know that it is a very painful process, but rape is a very serious crime and the person who raped you belongs in prison. And please keep in mind that rapists oftentimes attack many women, so by going to the police you may be preventing the criminal from raping other angels.
And regardless of when the rape or sexual assault took place, you need to receive counseling. Please get into therapy.
Rape is an extremely traumatic ordeal to go through, and you need some professional support. Find a good therapist, and stay with her for as long as you need her.
