Former WWE Divas Champion Eve Torres recently opened up on her Instagram about being a victim of sexual assault.
Torres said that it took her ten years to get to this moment and also provide some resources for other victims of sexual assault.
You can view the very powerful post below:
It is still Sexual Assault Awareness month, and I felt it was important to share this. For some, it takes decades and many life experiences to truly process what has occurred in our past. I didn’t tell anyone about my assault for over 10 years, likely because of shame, shock, denial, and an inability to come to terms with it. I thought surviving an assault would become my “identity,” and what I thought that meant at the time challenged my beliefs about who I thought it was. I now know this is far from the truth.
I know many women (and men) have still yet to processes many parts of their past. One might think that after 10 or more years, the wounds have healed, but while wounds left unattended can heal, they leave scars that exist with us for life. It is never too late to talk to someone about your past. It’s never too late to start healing. I will create space for you if you would like to talk to me.
Leave a [heart] below if you are open to listening to your friends and family about sexual assault.
