I am so sorry. Your story is TOO common. And the thousands of stories where it almost happened but something stopped the friend/co-worker/friend-of-friend perpetrator from following through. It is NOT OKAY. It is a breach of trust of the most intimate kind. I hope you are kind to yourself everyday. I hope you know this is not your fault. There are amazing support groups where you can tell more than one friend, or your fiance. I hope you’ve had the opportunity to find one that is good for you. The more you speak the more you help others. My friend Patricia Weaver Francisco wrote a poignant book, Telling: A Memoir of Rape. Your story is equally tender and poignant. Thank you for sharing.
