“I share my story because it’s therapeutic. I also share it because there is so much shame placed on sexual abuse victims by the media, society, and at times we victims are hard on ourselves. There is someone willing to listen to your story, be it a loved one, a professional therapist, or a support group. But you must first be willing to share your story.”
