Dear Rachel,  First and foremost, it was not your fault. You did not deserve it. You are a strong, beautiful, caring person, and no one can take that away from you. You didn’t ask to be here, but you get to choose where you go from here. This is the hardest thing you’ve ever experienced, and you’re doing great. Be proud of how far you’ve come. Some days will be a struggle to get out of bed, and that’s ok. It’s ok to hurt. You are not broken, you are healing. Know that you are loved, and I love every healing part of you. You are not a victim, you are a survivor.  Love Rachel
