22 Almond Blossom

Hi, I’m new

Recommended Posts

Hi, I found after silence a couple weeks ago, but it took some time to verify my account. I have tried talking to a few people about what happened to me, but every time I try, I just can’t do it. I am heartbroken and confused. I go back and forth trying to figure out if what I experienced classifies as rape. I am stuck surround and constantly remind of who did this to me which makes it worse. It will be nice to talk to people who understand and can help me understand more about my situation.

Hi 22 Almond Blossom,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the reasons you have come here, you will find the support you are looking for. You are not alone. Many of us have confusion and question the experience and often time fall into self-blame and doubt. This is sadly normal. I do hope by being here that you are able to find answers that you need. I tend to believe anyone compelled enough to come here is likely to have experienced something bad and are not to blame. I say that without hearing any details, because I know that nobody likes to think that this happened to them or someone is really that selfish and cruel. I say this tho, knowing that you need to find answers for yourself, you can't be told. We are here to support you either way.

Take your time and look around. See if any other posts feel similar or the feelings seem to match you. If you are ready, feel free to interact with our wonderful members. Remember you are not alone. Wishing you the best on this journey.

Mary
