I personally want to thank the ones who commented on a few of my stories, and believing in me.
Coming forth about being raped two years ago certainly wasn’t easy, but knowing I am not alone in this fight has made it a whole lot easier to open up to others (and some of my friends) who told me their stories.

To those out there struggling right now, and afraid to speak up, there is no judgement here. We’re all in this together, and I can only hope the new year will get a whole lot better for each and every one of us.

Take care, everyone.
