I hope you are able to regain a sense of peace and safety. I’m sorry you’ve had such traumatic experiences. I wish the world was not such a brutal place for women. Every story like yours is another bit of fuel for me to work to correct that brokenness.
Thank you for sharing this Jess. Your bravery stepping forward with this slice of reality will open eyes and allow others to do the same to show how common this is and why women don’t seek help or “tell” when they sense they’ll be shamed and blamed. Big hugs to you. I have two young daughters and you just helped them by writing and sharing this publicly. Eternally grateful, thank you!!
