I just found out that what happened to me last week is in fact sexual assault. I want to cut so badly. This is the fourth time someone has abused me. It's like im going to be abused all my life. I hate myself even more right now. I just need this to stop and cutting will help me deal with the pain.

I can see why you feel that way, but you will not be abused your whole life. Not everyone in this world is going to want to harm you in that way. There are some good people in this world, even if it doesn't seem like it.

Cutting will not help you deal with the pain. Cutting isn't a healthy choice to work through anything. Try to write and blog about your feelings surrounding the assault instead. Look at it this way: by self-harming, you're letting the person who assaulted you win. But picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and working through all of this will prove them wrong.

Don't think like that. You don't need to scar up your lovely skin over someone who isn't worth the time. You could try just talking to a friend or blogging was mentioned already. You are so much stronger than this, I can just tell, and I know that you are going to get through this. I'm not going to press for reporting the incident but you could consider talking to a therapist about it. Working past things like this is a challenge, but I know you can do it! I'll always be here if you need someone to talk to. Feel free to PM or IM me any time.
