6. You Are Much, Much Stronger Than You Think You Are: Sharing Your Stories of Abuse
After last week’s episode, I had so many young women reaching out to me and sharing their own stories of abuse. Today, I’m sharing some of those stories, as well as the advice that these women would give to their younger selves.
Almost every girl you know or will meet has experienced abuse in one form or another, and it’s not given nearly the attention it should be — we’re talking about something that affects nearly 51% of the population here (and that’s not even counting all of the men and nonbinary individuals who experience abuse, too, and whose experiences are no less valid). This is not acceptable, but too often, we are made to feel shame, guilt, and embarrassment when we are honest about our experiences — but not here.
This episode is dedicated to raising awareness about how common abuse is for young girls. This episode is dedicated to all of the young women who can’t share their stories. This episode is dedicated to a better future for all people.
