I went to this church and we had a youth night and this old guy I knew for a long time in my life he went up my skirt and grand my butt and said “ooo” and then proceeded to laugh.

How did this make you feel? What would you say to someone who has been through the same thing?

It was hard to trust him it even took me 4 years to open up. Your not alone, go at your own pace, and take a lot of time for self healing.

I feel horrible that I can’t trust people and scared to be alone with certain people and to people who has been through the same thing is too if you want you can go to the police / tell someone bc you really don’t wanna deal with it all on your own it’s a horrible thing to go through and my heat goes to everyone that has had to deal with this

Grace- 16

I just wanted to go to school. Instead I had a teenage boy sat behind me asking to ‘show [him my] tits’ multiple times. But the most terrifying thing was how close he was and how little attention anyone payed. It was on a crowded bus and no one batted an eye.

It is not your fault. I blamed myself because I stood up for myself. But it was his fault. Whoever it was, it was their fault and they deserve whatever is coming their way because you should never blame yourself for that. Never.

I was at gathering at my bestfriend place. There was only 6 people there. After having a late night and a few drinks we all decided to go to bed. The boys were suppose to stay in the lounge room and the girls in my bestfriend’s room. I was asleep when it happen, I had always been a deep sleeper. When I woke up the next day with my bestfriend crying and she told me what had happened I broke down. We never told a soul, he threatened us and I was just too scared.

It’s not your fault, whether you were under the influence or the offender was, no one should ever touch you when you’re unconscious or without consent.

My older sister sexually abused me starting as early as 6 years old(I’m female too). some of my first memories are of her harming me. Basically for as long as I could remember she’d make me touch her and her touch me. She was 4 years older so she got the sex Ed talk sooner than I did. It finally stopped when I was about 11 and big enough to stop her. She also exposed me to pornography during that time, and when my parents were away she’d lock me in the room with her while she watched it and touched herself or made me touch her. I fought pornography addiction until I was 21. I finally got help and admitted to my parents what happened when I was also 21, but they never said anything about it and still won’t acknowledge it. I don’t know if they just can’t process that it happened under their noses or if they actually knew about it and never did anything. My sister is now living on the streets and she’s not legally allowed to contact me (for a different reason) but it’s finally a form of justice for me.

I feel like it’s made me stronger. I do still have resentment towards her and a bit towards my parents as well, but I know through me forgiving her and them, it sets me above them. It gives me more control and more power to know I will not let it define me. My pain does not define my heart, my mind or my soul. I am not my past.
