It’s been something that I have been dealing with for what seems like a long time.

Being able to share this and be open about it and be accepting about what happened is a way to heal.

I had never thought that what happened to me would ever happen to me because

I thought of myself as someone who knew how to protect myself and I thought that I was around people that would never even do such a thing to me.

Being in that moment, and being in that place is terrifying because you’re trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

I don’t know where I’ll be in 5-10 years, but I’m sensitive right now. I’m still coping with it, but I’m opening myself.
