- #iwokeuplikethis. It’s true. Wow. How brave! I’m so vulnerable! Look at me! Oh wait...you already knew that people look different in the morning without makeup on. I shared my #MeToo story with some people that I thought would care. That I thought would understand. That I thought would love me through it. Instead, I was shot down. At least, that was my interpretation of the response. Maybe that’s not what was meant. It was very similar to the response I received 12 years ago when I told another #MeToo story to some other people who I thought would understand and love. I’ve kept a secret for too long. Only ever telling partial versions to protect him. To protect me from responses like that. What if they don’t believe me? What if it was my fault? Did I ask for it? Did he hear me say no 100+ times? Should I tell my husband? Should I tell his wife? This is why people don’t tell. Telling makes me feel more crazy. More at fault. More like I deserve this. I like to share my experiences with people because I feel like it helps people to feel like they aren’t alone. I wanted to share my #MeToo experience because I didn’t want anyone else to get hurt the way I did. But I can’t. Not now. Maybe not ever. But I can stand here completely naked and with no makeup on and pretend to be super vulnerable. It’s not real. The real vulnerability is in sharing my story and I can’t do it right now. To you who responded to my story with a response I didn’t expect, I forgive you. I hope that when your daughter or sister or mother or wife come to you with a story of sexual abuse that you’ll have ears to hear and a heart to understand. I hope that when they are standing naked literally or figuratively in front of you that you can respond with more kindness than I felt from you. I am only speaking for myself and I cannot for the life of me understand why you would think it necessary or appropriate or prudent to treat them the way you treated me. I hope you don’t. I for one AM interested in hearing from them. Especially on a subject like this. So if you ever think to add pain to their story and turn them away, send them my way. I will listen.
