Most of the time when victims open up about their situation, they don’t get the support they deserve, especially from their family and friends. It is so sad because they don’t even try to understand the victim but they put all their energy into uderstanding how the victim got herself in that situation. It is so clear to them, if there is someone to blame it is the victim.
I have been there myself. I remember when I talked about it to my friends and family things just got worse. From some people, I never had a reaction or even a comment like it was normal or not a big deal to get raped. While others were sure that I got myself into that position, asking me how was I dressed? Why did I got drunk? Was I flurting with him? Why did I went to that party? or in other words, did I somehow made him feel like I “wanted” to get raped? It’s crazy to see people who “loves” you react that way. I had no one to support me while some did not even believe me.
So let me tell you that I BELIEVE you and I know how it feels. But if your willing to feel better, you’ll have to speak up. SPEAK UP AND STAND FOR OTHER VICTIMS GOING THROUGH THE SAME SITUATION. All I want is to help someone out because I’ve been there and now that I am able to freely share my story, I FEEL MUCH BETTER! Now, I want you to feel better too.
