    How could this be your fault? You had no control over the r*pe happening and you definitely had no control over what your friends did. You weren't even there! I am so sorry that they did this... How awful. Sitting with you. ♥

    A lot of people think they know what's best for you after you've been through abuse, but in reality they don't know what the hell they are doing. I've been hurt through similar situations. I'm sorry that they didn't take your feelings into consideration when they did this. Let them know that this isn't alright and that you don't appreciate this.

I've been abused by many people all my life; sometimes inadvertently, but still abuse. How was I chosen for this abuse while some have never been abused? I don't understand... *confuzzled*

There's a giant glass box with everything that was ever amazing, awe inspiring, beautiful and creative. I'm outside the glass banging, begging and screaming to be let in. No one notices..
