Sexual Assault Survivors
To everyone else, you may look like you have it all together, but inside you’re struggling. You don’t feel like you’re where you should be. You don’t feel safe in relationships, and trusting others isn’t possible. You deal with shame and guilt. If you’re in a relationship, it may not be making you very happy. Your friends and family may be worried about you.
You thought if you stayed busy enough or worked hard enough, memories of the assault would fade. But they haven’t, and it’s keeping you from being the person you want to be. You feel powerless, defeated, and wonder how long you can keep going like this.
