How to make it stop? - August 17th 2010, 08:29 AM

So... one of my former teachers has touched me sexually a few times, even though he knows I don't want him to.
I know it's wrong. I do know that. But I can't bring myself to tell anyone. Not even a therapist. When it happens, I freeze. It's like I forget how to speak. And basically I was just wondering if anyone knows some ways I can work on saying "no". Or "stop". Or anything at all really...

Hey Jae,

I went thru something similar to that 4 years ago. I know what its like to freeze up like that. Looking back, I wish I had spoken up. It's harder then it looks, I know. You just have to try to & define your voice. Its not to late to say something about it. You can find the strength to tell someone. Rather its a friend or a therapist. If you can't completely comprehend whats happened, maybe they can help you find your voice in the matter & help make sure it won't happen to anybody else. Keep strong. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to PM me anytime..

I agree with Hannah.

And also, if you're struggling to find the words to say, try writing it down in a note to someone? I had a similar situation to this last year with a man who was hired to teach our class, and had to do a bit of fighting to get my point across, but in the end, he was go.

Remember, chances are if he's doing this to you, its probably not the first time. Don't let that stop you from seeking help about it though, and feel free to PM me any time.

And when I'm not sure how to try,
Who will take my hand?

Is it possible you could write it down in a letter and give it to your therapist or a friend or someone you trust instead? It might be a lot easier than actually saying it. You could even leave it with them and ask them to read it while you're not around if their response worries you. But you can find help, and it's definitely worth telling someone. If you do reach out, it can be stopped for good and you wont have to worry again. Stay strong and best of luck.
