"I hope that sharing my experience will bring support and encouragement to someone who needs it."
When I am asked to share my story, there is always a painful hesitation but I will always share for several reasons; one of which is the hope that sharing my experience will bring support and encouragement to someone who needs it.
It was three years before I told anyone my secret. It was a heavy burden I carried that affected every part of my life. I struggled each day to imitate what appeared as normal around me because my sense of normality died when I was sexually assaulted.
It has been an excruciating long journey to get to where I am today but where I am is a better place. Self development and healing are constant processes, there won’t be a day when you can say “This is as far as I go.” The beauty in that is the constant reminder that each day holds the potential to grow a little stronger; there is Nfinite Strength to be had.
