I Need Someone to Hear Me! in Public: Welcome! Posted March 14, 2019 Hi Dannie, Welcome to AS. I am so sorry for what you have experienced. I know how much that hurts. But I want you to know you aren’t disposable. You are not disposable. What that person did to you was wrong. It was unfair and it hurts. It is ok to cry, it is ok to mourn and it is ok to say that you are hurting. I think people try to make us fix things when we are younger without acknowledging who the problem party really is. I understand about wanting to leave. I understand about wanting to run away. I too heard the lie that time heals all wounds. Some sounds are too deep for time to heal. Often what one faces is downplayed because it unpleasant. Mentioning counseling gets the uncomfortable glances and people give the side eye. It is ok, there are people here who do care about you. There are people here willing to walk with you too. I want you to know you are not alone and his actions don’t define you. Sitting with you .
