Ask Shannon: I was raped as a teen and I can not control my anger.
I was raped when I was young, I want to know whether there is a chance I could get help to deal with this! I often get angry at myself for nothing.. Please help!
Wow! How strong you are to want to keep growing after such a traumatic experience. Many people choose to shut down after being hurt and some remain perpetually angry. You have every right to be angry, but not at yourself. The person who raped you deserves all your anger and you deserve peace. Anger management classes can help you manage your anger but you may benefit from trauma counseling or a rape survivors group. If you need help finding one just let us know your state and city.
