Dear Survivor,  I know it’s easy to feel like this is your fault, or feel like your not worth being respected. But at the end of the day you need to know that there was not a stamp on your forehead that said its ok to sexually assault me, it is not and will never have been your fault. Take a step back and understand that you are worth more than what you have experienced and it will build you into a stronger person. It takes time, take that into consideration and always look towards the light and incredible future you have waiting for you. Know that there are people waiting to be there for you. You just need to open your eyes and embrace the people that want and need to show you your self worth. Because I know for a fact that you are worth more than you know.  I got you.
