My first relationship and I thought it was love.
I was sexually assaulted at 13 in the 7th grade by my first boyfriend. it was on multiple occasions throughout when we were dating. I didn’t realize what was wrong until months later. After realizing this, going into a deep hole of depression and feeling hopeless. Even after speaking about my assault. He still continued even in plain sight in school. Teachers and staff never believed me and I was constantly told to stop talking about it because it was seen as "obsessive". I became friends with these two girls and later on, then two went to the office to completely say I lied about my sexual assault. Completely having nobody on my side, and more friends coming to his side. Nobody was there for the multiple occasions he sexually assaulted me. How could so many support someone who did this to me? I get called names and get bullied. Years later, it’s still a joke to some people. Sexual assault still counts even during the occasions you let it happen. You’re body reacts to protect itself, even as a young girl I didn’t think the worst could happen in a young relationship.
