Sorry to hear about this, thandi. You need to see a psychologist for psychotherapy / counselling, to give you back control over your feelings and emotions ; to help you stop allowing this bad man from continuing to be able to emotionally abuse you. And to help you revise the emotional responses these bad experiences have caused you to develop - to you can recognize that there are evil men ( and indeed evil women ) out there ) and good ones, and how to tell the difference and how not to be vulnerable to them.
Learn to open to good people and feel less lonely and more accepting and accepted, while remaining appropriately vigilant towards predators like your dad and others like him.
You can give up the inappropriate and unhelpful degree of anger, and reserve it for the people, like him, who acually deserve it. With other friends, you will feel less alone, more safe, and more confident.
