I’ve been a victim, I am a survivor. I know what it feels like, to feel like a piece of dirty rag.
You’re happy today, then tomorrow the family member who you think really likes you is trying to take advantage of you.
You try to refuse, but he already knows your weaknesses. They emotionally blackmail you and give you reasons to feel bad because you stood your ground.
You try to speak Up and no one is listening to you. You don’t even know who to talk to.
You find strength to voice out, no one believes you, with their mouths, they abuse you the second time.
And then, you’re terribly down. Heart broken and shattered.
You’re emotionally drained, you’ve lost your creativity and you’re beginning to hate men/women because of the abuser.
Some, end up lesbains and gays.
The hatred for the opposite sex wouldn’t go away.
The ones who don’t turn gay, end up being really promiscuous. Having sex at every point, without a second thought.
Male survivors who don’t find healing end up seeing women as only but a tool for sexual gratification and a war to conquer.
Female survivors who don’t find healing end up as prostitutes, taking cloud 9 trips with every being with a third leg.
The ones who come to hate sex, would rather not having anything to do with the opposite sex, including marriage.
Do you now see?
More than what we think, it’s a ripple effect. Negatively affecting more than just the victim.
Sometimes, victims of rape become rapists themselves.
The cycle goes on.
What are you doing? To build a safer world. A world, where children are left to become children. A world, where there’s no or very little issues of sexual violence.
Together, we build.
Breaking it’s toll on us.
