There are some things in life that take you and change you to your core. These things come out of nowhere and blindside you. For me, this was my sexual assault. I am a very different person after experiencing what I have. There is something about being forced against your…

Our Reach- Yes, You Matter

I feel like it’s important to share the reach of this website.  Selfishly, I love to see how many people read, comment, like, and follow.  But I also want everyone who shares their stories and articles to know that their voice is heard.  By many. As of my last update, these were our stats: 20…

Every Man A Victim

I know, I know, what the hell, right? It’s just that something has been bothering me.  I was in an abusive relationship a while ago.  It didn’t last for too long, and it wasn’t as bad as those TV shows want you to believe.  But, it was still enough for my life to take a 180. I’ve…

Survivor Wall – P’s Story of Emotional Abuse

It took me a long time to get to where I am now. I parted ways with my abuser (kind of) about 7 years ago. At times I feel like I can forgive and that I am at peace with everything, but that is rare and fleeting. I realized I had been abused 4 months…

What rape did to me

I’ve been thinking about what in my story could help others. I’m a firm believer that what was meant for evil, God will use for good. Then I think maybe it’s just the pure fact that I’ve learned to survive, maybe that is the encouragement. It has been a long road, one I’ve just recently…

(1/3) “Don’t go to big parties”, they say. “Stick close to the people that you know”. They tell you not to show too much skin, or you’ll look like you’re “asking for it”. In my case; “asking for it” looked like a girl in jeans and a tank top that didn’t…
