  1. Hi @New Uni Student, First, I am so sorry that you went through this awful event. Thank you for sharing your story, it is very brave; I am still gaining the courage to tell my story. I know that shame can linger for quit some time, as I have experienced this myself, but please know that what happened to you was not your fault. As far as telling your parents goes, it took me longer to do this as well and I depended on my friends and cousins especially during the first months after my recovery from the SA. I think you should be proud for being gentle with yourself and taking the time you need to tell others. Sending all good vibes to you. -mariposa
  2. Hi @searchingformore, I am so glad to have come across your blog. As a current grad student, a lot of what you mentioned really resonates with me. Self care and love is a major step and I am happy to hear that you prioritize this. Wishing you the best of luck on your fresh start!! -mariposa
  3. Thank you everyone! It was so nice to come back to your support this evening
  4. Hello everyone, After five years, I am finding the courage to break my silence. After five years of therapy sessions and learning about self-love, I am inching my way to confidence. A cloud of guilt that was looming overhead has finally started to lift. A transformation is coming, I can now tell bits and pieces of my story without the guilt lingering and the tears running endlessly. There is some sense of hope lingering to take the guilt's place. I hope that by joining this community, I might be able to nurture this newfound self-love and let it bloom. I look forward to learning from you all and someday soon sharing my story.
