I Am a Rape Survivor
I Am a Rape Survivor
It's okay to be mad, I'm still mad, I'm angry. I'm sad and it's okay to be sad. It's okay to be devastated I'm still devastated. It's okay to cry I still cry I cry myself to sleep or wake up crying it's okay to cry. It's okay to go silent I always do and nobody understands my silence. It's okay to sit on the floor in a corner and cry so hard that not a single sound comes out. It's okay to completely lose control of your emotions when you are trying to ignore what happened to you. It's okay to isolate yourself. It's okay to be afraid of being touched to hesitate to trust others. It's just all okay and very normal nobody can deal with rape I still don't understand why I don't know the reason for rape my mind just refuses to understand. But encourage others.
They call us rape survivors and victims and I think they call us that for a reason I don't know the reason yet. I know this is a hard and ongoing road but this abuse does not define us. As I started going through Facebook I see all these posts about women and kids being raped and I constantly got reminded about my traumatizing rape and how the world is changing but unfortunately, sexual assault is still happening every single day. People are beginning to talk about it more but it is not reaching a point where there is a solution.
As long as sexual harassment and assault continue to happen and as long as people out there still think it is slightly okay then everyone is still in danger of this happening to them. Maybe if we rape victims gather our unspeakable amount of courage it takes to speak up and say "ME TOO "we need to fight for ourselves as young ladies, kids and grown woman something has to be done to make a change or else this is keep on going to happen this gets posted on social on the internet it's on the news and everyone sees and notices this but nobody does anything about it. For A while it's gonna be a big thing but after that, it's just forgotten nothing done.Overlooking sexual assault is not okay it really isn't this hurts to core, we as women fear every step that we take.
