Our expert says:
See a counsellor, You really need that sort of expert and personal opportunity to talk through this, free yourself from bonds to the ugly things that happened in the past, and make wise decisions about your future. It's not your fault that you don't have a friend right now, especially after what happened to you, but this situation could change if you would aloow it to do so. And I like HotStepper's suggestion of some self0defense classes, not only to help you to feel safer, but more assertive and self-confident, too.
