Biography

Hi!
I’m Heather, a blogger here on When You’re Ready.org
Sexual assault is something extremely personal and important to me, and I’m trying to use my own experiences with it to help others deal with theirs.
No one should feel alone in his or her experiences. While I can’t stop these things from happening, hopefully spreading knowledge will help people learn how to handle sexual assault. I want the world to be a place where people feel safe to talk about their experiences to ensure they can heal.
Keep talking, Keep sharing. When You’re Ready, I’ll be here.

Everything happens for a reason, right?

It’s crazy how fast time flies sometimes. You go through the same motions day to day, and suddenly, it’s 6 months after you’ve been assaulted.

A few months ago while on spring break, I was assaulted. I don’t feel the need to go into details because, well, it happened, and I can’t change it. In the …

Dating After Assault

I should probably title this “lack of dating,” because right now, I just don’t think it’s possible. I’ve slowly been feeling better since my assault – I’ve started reopening up to having friends of the opposite sex, I’m starting to not constantly be upset and stressed, and I feel like the incident is moving to the back …
