I have started this blog because on Thursday 3rd March I was raped and find it hard to express a lot of what I'm feeling to my friends and family (because I feel bad putting this on them, it upsets them hearing about it, and although they are more than willing to listen to me, I don't want them to have to hear it) so need an outlet before I go mental. I also hope to raise awareness and make people realise the consequences of such a thing, and also to hopefully support and gain support from others going through the same thing.
I would one day like to be able to say I'm a survivor rather than a victim. I'm hoping this blog can help me achieve that.
What you are going through is one of the hardest things to experience. You’ll not always feel like a victim, but it takes time. Simply by creating this blog, you are taking steps to gain a lil control in your life, especially now when it feels like you don’t have any.
If you ever need to talk/vent/rage…please feel free to contact me. If the one’s around you can’t understand/be there for you, there are plenty of others who will.
You are strong. Don’t forget that. One breath at a time & you’ll eventually get to a place where you feel safe again.
