dearmargaret With so much in the news and social media lately about sexual assault, it is bringing up my own story that I've held in for 37 years. So many brave men and women are getting their stories out, and are receiving such support for people who don't even know them. They are being believed. Without even telling my own story to anyone, I almost feel validated. I'm still fearful though. Taking my pain public feels like more than I can bare. Shall I wait till it feels right for me?
Sitting in Silence

Dear Sitting in Silence: I'm sorry for your pain. You needn't go public if it's more than seems possible for you now. However, I would like to encourage you to tell someone you can trust about your very hurtful experience. I don't want you to suffer in silence, and you needn't be alone with it. I'm so very sorry this happened to you.
