“I pondered over that. I read about what happened emotionally to people who had been sexually assaulted, and a lot of it fit with my experience. The blocking it out. The justifying.

I started tearing up when I read this, because I have been feeling this way for a long time and thought that there was something wrong with me. I can’t thank you enough for writing this.
