A trusted friend, until he’s not
Tamyka Bell

First off, I’m sorry this happened. I’m sorry women are treated as objects to be wooed, touched, and discarded. Sometimes I forget how often it happens.

For me, hearing stories like these are really helpful. I’ve been completely ignored by women I’ve approached for seemingly no reason. These stories remind me that women do have good reasons to ignore random guys or maybe even guys they know. So, thank you for sharing your experiences. (It doesn’t happen often, just an example)

I’ve never experienced trauma like this so I can’t comment on it. I do know that forgiveness can be healing, listing what I have control of can be helpful, and setting strict boundaries can be necessary. It may not help the trauma but it’s nice to keep these things in mind.

Again, thank you for sharing, it really is helpful. I wish you the best.
