When we think of rape, we often make the mistake of thinking about a stranger attacking his victim. Of course this does happen, but more often, rape is committed by someone the victim knows.

After experiencing the trauma of rape, you may find that people around you do not really understand. They hear you and may even try to offer help and advice, but they cannot possibly know what you are going through, how this heinous act of power and control has affected you.

Rape is not something that can just be forgotten, but it is possible to work through your feelings and learn to live with them. Understanding and believing that you are not to blame, is harder than it sounds, but the more you understand the nature of your trauma, the less overwhelming it will be and the more able you will be to move on with your life and leave those feelings behind.

The person who did this to you had no right. Don't let him take away your right to enjoy your life any longer.  There is life after rape when you take back control.
