Hi, I’m not here to share my story. Because I already did that (http://www.bravemissworld.com/share_your_story/fear-became-a-part-of-my-life) I’m here to tell you all, that there is hope for us.
After almost 1 month of joining this site/forum and telling my story, yesterday (with the help of my boyfriend), I finally got the courage and strength to tell my mom. And even though I was consumed with fear and sadness at this point, I let it all out. And now I wonder…Why did I keep it to myself for so long? After almost 7 years of that incident, I finally did it. (Shout out to the people here who helped me and encouraged me to do it!) And I have to got to say, she took it in a really nice way. She’s always been a strong woman, and I admire her for that. So she has been really supportive. And I just want to say, that if there’s someone out there with a similar situation as mine, please, break the silence. Tell someone. Get help. In the end, it’s all for yourself and you’re going to thank yourself for taking those steps. At first, it’s going to be terrifying, but then you’re going to feel as if the weight of the world just left your shoulders. After all, we’re not victims. We’re survivors.
