While in a fight, my best friend once told me: “Everyone is fighting a battle of their own.” I had depression for a long while without realizing what it actually was. When I was raped, it took me only a few days to realize I wasn’t helping myself by being upset. There are no “real” survivors. I experienced& am currently experiencing pain because of what happened. I’ve learned how to make something of myself despite it. I only hope that you overcome your battle as well.
