I've spent a short while trying to decide whether to type anything on here. Because honestly I spoke to one person about what happened to me and I'll just say they were a responsible adult and they told me 'it happens to everyone at your age, it's no big deal' but maybe it's my fault they said that. 

I mean I didn't tell the whole story, I didn't want my parents to find out. Is it my fault? What should I have done?

ANyway Hi! Nice to meet you all

Hello simply, I am Wanna :flowers:

What happened to you is not your fault. I can say that right away without details. It is never your fault.

If you are unsure about whether you gave consent or not, that is not right. You should always be sure you was safe and respected. If somebody has done something to you, resulting to the point of you considering it as SA/R/harassment, that is a big deal. Nobody should have to go through with this. It doesn't matter how "normal" this would be, that doesn't make it any less serious. 

 I am sincerely sorry for your reasons to be here, but hopefully After Silence can offer the support you need. You can talk about anything here, and you decide what to share and not. We will believe you. You own your story. This is a place to vent, exchange support, advice and much more :) 

Feel free to have a look around and once you feel ready, this platform is here for you! Also, if you would have any questions, need some venting/chatting or anything at all, us staff always have doors open. You can DM me or any staff of choice. 

Hope to see you around. My warmest welcomes :aswelcomesu:  :supportu:

- Wanna ☀️

Hi simply,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for what happened to you and it is a big deal. Whoever told you it is not either does not understand or they rather not think about there being people like this out there, so denial kicks in. Being hurt is not something anyone should go thru. It's not deserved and it's not right. How you are questioning yourself sadly is common among survivors. We second guess our own actions...but should be questioning their actions. There is never an excuse or reason anyone should hurt you. Never.

I am glad you have found our community. Do know that there are so many here that understand what you went thru and will support you. Your story is validated and how you feel is so normal for something that was un-normal.

Please look around the site. Interact where you feel comfortable, without pressure. You are not alone.

I wish you well as you begin this path we call healing. You are not alone.

Mary
