i'm glad i can interact with guys who are similar in age to the people who abused me and not worry about being taken advantage of (or have them hit on me, etc.) and not be afraid of being sexualized. gives me some hope that not all adult guys are predatorial.

There are good guys out there.  But in terms of your abuse, you deserve to be allowed to heal, you deserve your anger.  Have you had counseling to start that process?

@CKBlossom no not yet. i still haven’t told anyone more than friends.

@andine @CKBlossom i appreciate those but i've visited all of them already. talking to a random person online does not offer me closure. i would like to open up in therapy, but for reasons previously mentioned in other posts that won't happen anytime soon.

@ruin of course do what is best for you. So glad you are here and reaching out for help. I found with hotlines that business hours may provide more seasoned staff. Local abuse support might provide more individualized service and still maintain your anonymity if that helps.
