When I was 13 I began dating an 18 year old guy.He was sweet and loving at first. But one day he just changed. He began forcing me to take pills and beating me.He even would let his friends pay him to molest me. I finally had the courage to dump him. A few weeks after we broke up I got set up at a party. He and four of his friends violently raped me. After that for about five years they would blackmail me and force me to meet up with them so they could rape me. I found God and I am learning to deal with the trauma.This experience only made me stronger. I chose to not let the past define me.
