I’m going to use a big word here because you clicked past the trigger warning and it’s important that we use big words when big things happen to us because it’s important that we call these things what they are.
Assault is a very serious and scary thing that can happen to anyone. It is important for you to know that if you have ever experienced assault, it is never your fault. Assault is when someone hurts you in a way that is not okay. It can happen in many different ways, such as someone touching you in a way that makes you uncomfortable or someone hurting you physically.
Sometimes, people who assault others may try to make it seem like it is the victim’s fault. They may try to make you feel like you did something wrong, or like you asked for it. But it’s very important to remember that this is not true. No matter what you were wearing, what you said, or what you did, it’s never your fault if someone hurts you in a way that you didn’t want.
It can be very hard to talk about assault, and it’s okay to feel scared or embarrassed. But it’s important to know that you’re not alone. There are many people who can help you and support you, such as your parents, teachers, school counselors, or other trusted adults. You can tell them what happened and they will help you.
If you ever experience assault, remember that it is not your fault. You didn’t do anything wrong, and you deserve to be safe and happy. You are a strong and brave person, and you can get through this. Just remember that there are people who love you and who will be there for you, no matter what.
