New Here, Finally Ready To Talk


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I was really reluctant to join this forum for a long time, nervous to finally speak up. I am a multiple assault and abuse survivor and this is the first time I've ever told anyone, I just wanted to pretend like nothing ever happened. I can't change my past, but I don't want it to ruin my future. I just don't really know where to start.

Welcome to AS. I am also a person who's had multiple/repeated assaults. I'm sorry this happened to you as well.

You've started already by signing up here and reaching out :)

You are not obliged to tell your story right away, you can when you are comfortable to. The Share Your Story forum requires a total of 10 posts before you can post there. You can play games in the Humor and Silliness forum, vent your frustrations in Venting, seek support in the Gathering Place, etc.

It's not easy, but the members here do make it easier. Take your time and look around. I do wish you the very best on your healing journey.
