Hi, still making sense of everything

Hi there,

I'm glad I found this forum. I've been battling a lot of shame and self-blame these last few months so I am hoping to connect with others who may be able to share some insight with me. I've been so confused and am only beginning to make sense of my experience. Thank you for your support.

Hi mrae,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am so sorry for what you experienced and the struggles you are facing. It is common to feel the way you do, but know, you are not to blame. The only one ever to blame is the one who hurts without forethought to your feelings or consent. They had that obligation and failed horribly. You are not alone. We are here for you and we validate what you've been thru.

I encourage you to look around and interact when and where you feel comfortable. You will find much support from our understanding members. Wishing you well as you begin this journey we call healing.

Mary
