Content Warning: rape

I was 18 and a boy years older than me became a close friend of mine. I knew his best friend and his brother. We had a FWB things for a moment but he took things too far without my consent and I became pregnant. I never told him and I didn’t know until ten years later that it was rape, that my friend had raped me. I kept shutting it out and shaming myself because I knew no one would believe me. I hated myself. I hated my body. I was even on birth control. I began to hurt myself and ending up giving myself an abortion. I do not regret that abortion, I do regret that I didn’t do it safely. This is why abortion should be kept legal, so people don’t have to harm themselves just to feel free.


All my love,


Remember that our stories are ours to tell. We’d love to hear your story too!
