Was it a Rape or my Overreaction that Made Me Hate Men
In the Summer holiday, a friend planned a visit to my house for a few days. We were a family friend and have been friends our entire lives and I have always looked at him like a brother. Everything was fine until that night. I woke up in the middle of the night and felt he was touching me. I told him to stop and he immediately did. I was scared and confused so I just shut my eyes and tried to pretend it didn’t happen and then again after a few minutes, he tried to do it again. This time I went and slept upstairs. I told my parents what happened and they told his parents and it got dealt with. It’s been six months and I am still bothered by the whole thing. I have grown trust issues and a certain hatred towards men. I hate myself because I feel like I’m overreacting as I wasn’t raped. But I felt so violated and hurt. I’ve told my mom about this and every time she tells me that she will get therapy but just forgets about it. This makes me feel like it wasn’t really important and I am overreacting. I don’t know what to do because this isn’t going away.
