Still feel down

I’m still scared of my cousin.

I am scared if he’s gonna come after me.

Which makes completely sense, @Katelynn. You were hurt and the fear remains. It is not meant to be present for the rest of your life, but it surely takes time to regain a sense of safety progressively.

Do you still have to see him sometimes? (family gatherings, etc)

You’re loved. :hrtlegolove:

No, thank God. I don’t have to see that idiot.

And I’d never let him come near my kids one day. Because I never want them to go through the same thing as I did. It’s not okay to touch a girl or boy in a bad way, even if it’s a male cousin. I am glad I am safe, and I am very happy that I have support. :green_heart:

It is indeed not okay. No one should ever experience having their intimacy being violated by someone else. Your body is, and will always be yours. I’m glad you don’t have to see him at all, and hope that you can remind yourself of this reality when the fear tends to overwhelm you. You are safe. <3
