Forget the risk. Take the fall. If it's meant to be, it's worth it all.
We will never sleep, 'cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest, 'til we're all fucking dead

Hey there,

Harassment does count and its a very terrible thing to go through. If you think you're being verbally and emotionally abused, I suggest telling someone who can get these people away from you, such as a teacher or police officer. Its obvious that you don't feel safe and its important that you do. I know it hurts but perhaps you can give us a little bit more information about the situation so that we can help you more? If not, that's okay too. Feel free to PM me if you need someone to talk to.

Take care of yourself okay?,

If it makes you uncomfortable in any way, then it counts. You do not deserve to be treated cruelly or put down. If you even suspect you are being harassed, even if you think it "isn't bad enough to matter" go see someone you trust. Talk to them about it and they will help. Do not let yourself think you are blowing it out of proportion because most likely you are not.

Actually, harassment does count as rape.

Harassment does count because it still hurts you. Have you told your family about this? one person or a group of people start abusing you thats when you need to call the police because it's gone to far. Don't let these horrible people destroy your life.

Just so you are aware, harassment is NOT rape. Although it isn't right, it's not classified as rape because rape is any unwanted sexual contact between two or more people. The OP is asking about being verbally/emotionally abused and it counting as harassment. Just thought I'd clear that up.

I understand your position. It's important who it's by. If it's by a work colleague you can talk to your manager and if your manager doesn't do anything you should go to head office. If they don't do anything, just find a new job.

If it's by a friend, talk to your school teacher/s or principal or just avoid that person where you can.

If it's by a team member in a group or sport, talk to your coach or the group organiser.

If it's by your parents - You should really just talk to them. I went through the same thing and when I approached my parents, they felt very guilty, they apologised and things have actually been a lot better since then. I still don't have the best relationship with them but talking to them surprisingly helped a lot.

It was awkward for me, so I just wrote them an email and then we talked about the email. It was easier to approach them that way. Try whatever works for you.

Good luck!
