    i was sexually assaulted on multiple occassions by the same person, i feel sick thinking about it and feel disgusted by myself. i reached out to someone in my school and they spoke to the boy about it however literally nothing has changed or made a difference. now i dont know if speaking out was the wrong thing as its not helped matters at all and hasnt changed a single thing, his actions are still the same and he walks around school like hes something great! seeing his face makes me angry and makes me hate myself to the extreme.

    Hi I'm really sorry this has happened to you. Nobody should have to go through that or experience the feelings your now feeling because of it. Firstly you've done nothing wrong at all so please be kind to yourself. Don't let someone else's horrible actions make you hate yourself because you deserve love and happiness. I'm sorry the person you told hasn't really helped. It's great you were able to tell someone though. This happened to me in December with a boy and girl at school and I've never told anyone, wish I could but I can't. But you have and that's fab. Well done. It might be worth telling a trusted adult someone you really trust, maybe a fave teacher or your mum and dad. Someone who will get this sorted for you because was what happened was wrong and the boy needs to answer to it.

    But please be kind to yourself. This wasn't your fault.

    And do talk about it because otherwise your feelings will get worse and we don't want that to happen.

    hugs xx
