Assault is not your fault

Sexual assault, rape, molestation, unwanted fondling, unwanted attention, stalking, sexual harassment, battering, emotional abuse, domestic violence…. NONE of it is your fault.

Decide to find a trusted soul who can supportively listen as you talk about what happened, share your feelings and begin to release some of the shame, self-blame and pain. You didn’t do anything wrong. You didn’t do anything to cause yourself to be hurt. It is not your fault.
