Q: I’ve become an “accomplished” adult man in his 40s. I was raped by a door to door salesperson when I was 9 years old. I’ve been doing well, but always wondered if there’s a chance that I’ll become a rapist myself… Reasoned with that many abusers themselves have been abused. Can I finally stop worrying?
What you wrote about “Reasoned with that many abusers themselves have been abused” is wrong.
It is not a rule that victims become a predator, thoug probably they might have been sexually abused.
You do not have to worry about becoming an abuser, even if you’ve been subjected to sexual abuse.
Remember is it not the case that predators become perpetrators justified by sexual abuse earlier.
Yes, you don’t have to worry about becoming an abuser.
