….homely, so it’s a good thing you’re smart!,” an aunt laughed.

“You look just like Mom! — she was beautiful!,” a brother insisted.

“Maybe not pretty, but, striking…,” a sister mused with a shrug.

    Hello there,

    You have a really great blog which I am sure other survivors will find very inspiring. I’m sorry if my comment seems out of place but I couldn’t find an option to message you privately. I am a postgraduate student from the UK and I am currently researching the role of blogging for survivors of sexual assault. I would really appreciate it if you could spare a couple of moments to contact me as I am interested in using your blog as part of my research, and would like to provide you with more information.

    Thank you so much for your time. Have a great day and I wish you all the best in your journey to healing.
