  1. Of course! ….HE holds ALL the blame. Not you. It sounds corny, but be gentle with yourself...
  2. Hey, Sam. I'm terribly sorry these horrific things happened to you. 😢 You should have been safe. You should have been able to just be a teenager. Nothing that happened was your fault. All the shame is his to bear. You are SO brave for typing this out. I know it couldn't have been easy. I'm really proud of you Safe hugs if okay? -Kim
  3. @Empty Tears Hi Saoirse, I'm glad you found this site. I joined a few months ago and have found people to be very encouraging. I'm so sorry for what happened to you. You didn't deserve that and it was definitely NOT your fault. I understand how easy it is to become closed off to people. Just know that you're not alone here. Take your time getting to know this site and know that there are people on here, including me, who are here to support you. -Kim
  4. You are so brave for writing this out and keeping it up. I understand how hard it is to let yourself be vulnerable, and (I hope this doesn't sound too weird) I'm proud of you.
  5. @samantha2009 Hey Sam, I'm heartbroken that you had to experience any of this. This guy is sick. You are not to blame for any of the feelings, reactions or actions that happened. It wasn't your fault. As a teacher he should've been someone who protected you. I'm so sorry this happened. Sitting with you & hugs if okay...
  6. Hey @Dreamer24, I'm sorry you've had to go through this type of thing, but I'm glad you're reaching out & that you found After Silence. I got on this site a few months ago and have found it to be a good place to just get things out and allow others to encourage you. The people on here have been really kind and are willing to share their experiences/wisdom with you (if that's something you want). Anyways, just wanted to say hey and welcome you on here Feel free to message me if you'd like, Kim
  7. Hey @Rileyyy, I'm sorry for what you've been through. I've struggled with suppressing emotions, thoughts, my past, etc...too. I joined this site a few months ago and have found it to be a good place to start opening up about the things that you feel you can't share in "real life" just yet. I also know what it feels like to think that your problems aren't worthy of other people's time, but they are. You have every right to be here and you deserve a place to start healing. Again, I'm sorry you have reason to be here, but I'm glad you found this site.
  8. Hey @boxergal30, I'm sorry you have reason to be here. I joined a few months ago myself and have found this site and the people on here to be very kind and helpful. It's been about 20 years since the first time I was assaulted and I still struggle with it. Just wanted to let you know you're not alone.
  9. I'm sorry these things happened. You deserve sooooo much better. What these people did was perverse. You are worth so much more than anything anyone can do to you. Their actions reflect their sickness, not who you are. Know that you're not alone and that I'm sitting with you- if that's alright. #bravesam
  10. @snmls @missfrier @8888 @Poppy_ @Struggling88 Thank you all for being so kind and welcoming!
  11. Hey @Poppy_, you are so brave for sharing your story. I'm deeply sorry that you had to go through that. Thank you for sharing and giving others hope that they too can share their story one day. Again, you are amazing and courageous. Thank you.
  12. Thank y'all for the kind welcome. I can already tell this group is very encouraging and supportive. I'm glad to be on here.
  13. Thank you Mary, I appreciate the support.
  14. Hi, so I don't know what all to put here, but I'm glad this site exists. I hope being here will help be a part of my healing. Thanks, Houston a.k.a. Kim
