Having already been raped once by a guy who I thought was the most loveliest person in the world, it happens again. But by my own cousin. I still hadn’t come to terms with the first rape considering it only happened two months before my cousin raped me. It took me a long time to tell my supportive family. Still to this day I regret not reporting the two men. But I’m only 18, and I have already been to court after being beaten up and mugged when I was 16. The people who beat me up and mugged me hardly got any justice. So I thought, well what if the court doesn’t believe me? What if nobody believes me and think I’m lying? What if it will all be a waste of time? I had suffered from severe depression beforehand and I was doing so well until I got raped twice. By two different men. After reading so many survivor stories, I decided to open up and get it off my chest. Whether it works or not, I don’t know. But I’m ok.
