      I had a low moment today and called the rape crisis helpline, and the lady there told me she was really proud of me for getting myself into therapy and trying to be better.

      My friend who has also been SA-ed in the past also said she thought I was really strong for dating again afterwards.

      So I just want to say to whoever is reading this: You are strong.

      Whatever you think is the bare minimum, even just reading this and posting here means you’ve taken back something of your life and I’m proud of you for doing that.

      I am also proud of you (lots) whether it counts or not? You’ve been though an ordeal that no one should experience that damages your mind, soul and body and leaves you feeling the most disgusting worthless piece of **** going, so for you to be in positive moments and be a cheerleader for us is just something else, well done, be proud of yourself and get every bit of support you need 🥇⭐️👍🏻

        Thanks so much Auriel, of course it means a lot! And you’re right that cheerleading is difficult, so thank you for doing it so often too 🙂

        It is difficult hun really difficult (I know, personal experience) when we become o cheerleader for others they in turn do the same and then we start our own cycle (the opposite of the abuse one)😉👍🏻💛
