For the survivors x
I really hope you’re okay. I really hope that you’ve been able to speak to someone, and that someone told you that whatever happened it was not your fault. It’s never your fault. I hope the second guessing hasn’t been too confusing, and the triggers as few as possible.
I’m sorry that this happened to you, I honestly don’t know why people think it’s okay to inflict pain upon each other and take something so sacred from one another. Your body should always be yours; you should love it, nurture it and always tell it it’s perfect just the way it is.
Most of all your body is always yours to control. I’m so sorry someone has taken this power away from you, and probably made you reconsider so many truths about yourself and society. But you were right, your body is yours to control, it’s not theirs. It’s no one else’s. You are the authority, you can still so “no.” Please remember this.
Keep exercising your right to tell your story; to make choices that help you survive and be kind to yourself. Most of all, be kind to yourself.
You’re a survivor to get to this point. Keep going- and reach out when you need supporting, when you need propping back up. That’s more than okay too.
