Never discount a survivor of abuse due to the amount of time b/w the assault & speaking out. It means nothing as far as credibly.

I was molested from abt 7-14 &didn't speak abt it for 18 yrs. Also, I was raped by a pastor & only opened up abt it after hanging myself 👇🏼1/
In a suicide attempt that should've killed me. Anyone criticizing or disparaging #Ford for speaking out is why we need a #metoo movement. Collectively we can't be silenced. Alone we are just whispering into a void. 👇/2
Not only do we spend a lifetime wondering "WHAT happened" "HOW did it happen" & a lifetime of every "what-ifs" imaginable. We feel broken, unlovable, scarred, self conscious & paranoid. Don't let the smile fool u. The real pain is behind the eyes and in the heart u can't see👇/3
ANY victim of an assault DESERVES to be heard & cheered on for courage alone. Her entire world was flipped in 3 days. I hope #MeToo can rally around her w/virtual hugs & support

Thanks, Ms. Ford, for your courage & having the mental fortitude to do what is right. We've gotchu /E
