      Awesome!  :throb:

  2. I AM going to find me again. Today Im not having any of it, I accept how things make me feel with compassion and Im fighting back! I guess it is going to be a new me, one that is honest with herself and those close to her about her pain. This is not going to take me down with it - HE does not get to win!

      That is exactly what it feels like! Oh it would be nice to cry and have a long tight, safe cuddle before they go. Thank you for your honesty and support in this 💛 you can always PM me too.

      And yes you can follow, I used to think it was creepy but I understand now how following allows you to support friends. :friends2:

      I am ok.  I have very few people in RL, so I guess I look for safe spots online to hide and try to heal.  Thank you for letting me sit here for a while!  Hope you’re safe and well!

      Me too, AS is definitely the best place to hang, feel safe and heal. Im not very social in RL either I get too much anxiety. You are welcome to hang here, Im glad of the company. I am OK too thanks for asking 🧡 B

  6. We all deserve to be heard and supported.... Sexual assult and sexual abuse is often not black and white 🖤 ❤

  7. Iv tried looking this up. Idk if feeling like this is weird.. but after my assault all I feel like I’m good for is sex and when I do have sex with my partner I feel ashamed (even though he knows about what happened and makes sure to make me feel loved) it’s like no matter what I still feel like a sl*t after sex even oral sex. Do you have any advice is this normal

      Hi @Michellessecret 

      Im sorry for the difficulties that you are having since your assault. From posts I see on this forum and from my own experience is it common to have some unhelpful internal thought processes around sex. But you are not a sl*t and you have nothing to be ashamed of and you are more than a person just for sex. I am glad that you have found AS and I am glad that you are reaching out. If you post within the forum section Aftermath, you will get some more responses of how others manage these feelings. Sitting with you for support if you would like? B

    It's enough, I've done all I can think of, chased down all my demons, I've seen you do the same, oh

    Pretty, pretty please, iIf you ever, ever feel, Like you're nothing, you are perfect to me"

      Love it, thank you for sharing!  I have heard that song but didn't realize those were the lyrics.

      I often resonate her lyrics. Thanks for sharing them. They do have such a real and powerful meaning.    

  9. You’re an amazing woman. Thank you so much for being the light in the darkness

      They are super kind words DakotaSun. I am not sure that I deserve them, but if I can help anyone in just a little way that makes me happy. ☀️ 🐿️ 🧡

  10. Shame.

    Everyone has it.

    No-one wants to talk about it.

    But the less we talk about it,

    the more we have it.

  11. @Empty Tears Hi saoirse, wecome to After Silence. Im sorry for what you have been through and that you have reason to be here. Here you are not alone it is a safe and understanding place. Take your time to look around the site and talk to people. You have been so brave in joining and making your first post, I hope being here helps you on your healing journey. B ❤
  12. @girlsnz Im so pleased your T session went well, its really positive that you are managing to ground from your flashbacks better, but it is still very hard to be having them continuously and to be recieving new memories through them. Im sorry that you feel you should be further along in your healing, it makes sense that this could only be done when your everyday life was less chaotic. I think the same has happened to me. Keep fighting to heal Girlsnz, we are here for you. B ❤

  15. Im sorry that your struggling so much right now. I can relate to this inner battle and the thoughts that battle each other with their different perspectives. I wait for the day one will speak forever louder than the other and makes the other fade. Sitting with you if you would like? ❤ B
