This is for all the people that don’t realize how real this is. How many young girls. How many stories. How many family members. How many afraid. How many confronted. How many denied. How many... still unspoken, still unacknowledged.
These are just some of the messages I received after I posted my story. I won’t lie, I couldn’t read them all. I felt too emotionally weak and helpless as I read each one, and midway I stopped because I couldn’t take it anymore. That’s no ones lack of strength but my own.
Thank you for reaching out. Thank you for telling me you’ll make a change and you will get help. Thank you for trusting in me. I know it isn’t easy - there’s so much more I want to say to you, and once I find the words, I promise I will.
