Think you’re alone? maybe this will help…

Standard

Isn’t it just CRAZY that we live in a time where its just fine to come out and say that we were victims of a robbery or some crime like that, But even when we know that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men are victims of sexual abuse, NO ONE TALKS ABOUT IT!?!? If you ask me, that’s a problem… the truth is, you’re not alone.. don’t believe me? check out this list of famous people who have also shattered the silence of their own sexual abuse. (hmm when do you think they’re gonna add Sarah from the Real World to the list, eh? haha) SPEAK OUT! BREAK THE SILENCE! TAKE BACK YOUR POWER!  I mean really…Henry Rollins, Mr. Badass-Motha’-You-Know-What himself is on the list! These people don’t let their abuse define them, and neither should you!
