SECRET REGRET OF THE DAY: February 6, 2017

I regret thinking that being sexually assaulted was my fault. I was out with my friends and I had too much to drink. After house parties and multiple bar hops – I was blacked out. My acquaintance took me to his place, I remember he offered me a glass of water but after I don’t remember really anything . I woke up in his bed and I was fully naked. I was scared and didn’t know what to do. I didn’t have my phone, lost my wallet and my clothes were flung all over the room. He was passed out . I tried to get dressed without him waking up but he did and took me back to my dorm room. He was my friend and he was always nice to me. I felt alone and I couldn’t talk to anyone about it. I would still see him out at the bars and he would try to get me to come back with him – the stupid thing is, I did. I felt like a need to make this obviously broken relationship work and somehow it would make me feel better. It didn’t and I was really down about for a long time . But once I realized it was NOT my fault, I blocked him out of my life and never looked back. It was just hard for me to believe that my friend (or so I thought) would do something like that to me. You never think it’s going to happen to you and it’s life alterning when it does. I still find myself not being able to trust people especially guys who start talking to me.

  1. A sexual predator will use any advantage he can, including grooming and brainwashing the victim to think she invited his attention and her behavior caused him to do what he did. Find someone and talk it out.

  2. You should never blame yourself,even if it’s just a small issue!Sexual assault is a serious thing and people need to realize that embarrasment just holds them back.It’s much worse if you keep these problems in yourself,because then they will build up and that’s definitely worse than being ashamed. I’m writing this for a school project about regrets but I still mean what I wrote to you,and I hope you will find someone to talk about this with soon! Wish you well!!:)
