your story matters.

 

As survivors of sexual trauma, opening up about our experiences can lead to validation, support, and access to resources for healing. But let's not sugarcoat it – it's also daunting. The fear of stigma, judgment, and re-traumatisation can make disclosure incredibly challenging. There's this constant worry about not being believed. 

 

 Ultimately the decision to share our stories is ours and ours alone. It's about embracing our truth, acknowledging our experiences, and seeking the assistance we require to move forward. In a world where speaking out can be met with skepticism or dismissal, it's empowering to stand up and say, "This happened to me, and I deserve support."

 

So, whether you choose to disclose or not, remember: your voices matter, and you're not alone. Disclosure is a personal choice and one that is valid in all scenarios. It’s up to you to decide how much you’re comfortable sharing now and in any future situations.

If you do feel called to share your story with Shushbox, please send your submission to hello@shushbox.com in any format that resonates with you best (words, music, poetry etc).  All stories will remain anonymous when published unless requested otherwise.  

Do be mindful of your feelings and emotions if reading through the below submissions.
