Brave's Story

Brave's Story

Brave shared her story with us but requested to be anonymous , this is #herstory . Iʼm a S.U.R.V.I.V.O.R !!!!!! No I didnʼt survive some awful disease or condition. I survived being raped as a teenager by some dirty man in a dirty garage. I was a foolish teenager who thought that my no meant no. I only told a few friends at school what happened to me and I kept it hidden and buried until now . As a result of the rape I became promiscuous because I made up in my mind that no one would be able to take anything from me ever again without my permission. I hadnʼt let Jesus in my heart yet and now I know that it was Him that protected me during that horrible time . He thought of me even though I wasn’t thinking of him . It took many years to open my heart to Jesus but I’m glad I did . It took some years of living on the edge to finally be surrendered to Jesus. The #metoo movement means so much to me because it happens to Me Too ! Me telling my story doesn’t erase what happened but me sharing it releases the hold it has on me and with the help of Jesus I can finally move forward. This is #herstory so what’s yours ?
