During the month of May, Sexual Violence Prevention Month (#SVPM), we’re posting one true thing a day.
To cope with the abuse, survivors quite often blame themselves. That somehow they caused the assault to happen. This shame causes survivors to question whether we can make good decisions, whether we can keep ourselves safe.
You can make good decisions. You are good at keeping yourself safe. You know yourself best.
