Juliet Ibrahim, an actress, has stated that her past rape experience has no bearing on her ability to find love again because she has moved on.
The fair-skinned actress stated this in a Saturday interview with Punch, adding that she is open to finding love again.
Juliet Ibrahim disclosed that she was raped by her ex-boyfriend in an interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo that was released on May 2.
Her ex-lover allegedly locked her up for days and had sex with her without her consent every day until her sister arrived to her rescue.
“My past does not affect my future. Yes, the past can hurt but it is said that we are to leave the past behind and learn from it. Many people run from the past or live in the past but I have always believed in the positivity in life and each unique circumstance.
Yes, one can have a healthy relationship after sexual assault. The experience I spoke about in that part of the interview (with Chide Jideonwo) is not recent. It happened over a decade ago. Every rape victim heals differently, and every victim speaks up when they are ready.
Every rape victim opens up to loving again when they are mentally and physically ready. I thank God that I have been able to love again after my past experiences. I am currently single but I do love hard and I am open to (falling in) love with a great man. There is so much love inside of me as I am a hopeless romantic.”
