Our expert says:
Sory to hear about your awdul experiences. It often happens that one remains disturbed by such trauma. This may be in milder forms, and natural that one feels angry about what happened, especially if the perpetrators got away or were gently treated, as happens far too often in our country. But one may also develop PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, which needs careful assessment and treatment, including medications and skilled psychotherapy, to enable one to recover. I don't believe any victim should ever be encouraged to "forgive" those who harmed her, but it is indeed useful to work with a psychotherapist / counsellor to let go of the sort of bitter brooding over what happend and those who did it, which does them no harm at all, but ties you firmly to replays of the awful events, instead of enabling you to move through this and to get on with the happier part o your life.
