I've very recently started seeing somebody about a rape that happened just over a year ago now and all the people closest to me are aware of what is happening and are supporting me so much in every way possible...that is, everybody except my parents. I'm terrified to tell them, i don't know how they'll react. My mum isn't the most understanding person and i know she will demand to know everything just because of her own selfish curiosity whereas my father (who knows the guy who raped me) will instantly want to press charges. Regardless of this, i feel like i should tell them, they're my parents and they deserve to know. I just don't know how to go about this? Anybody else know good ways or strategies to this, or have any stories?
