It’s weighing heavy on my mind today. I’m past the point where I constantly ask myself “why?” Why did I walk alone? Why did I even go to that show? There’s really no use in asking that anymore. My brain is tired from trying to make sense of it all. My friend’s band Colors played at a venue off of…

I couldn’t read through this without my eyes welling up multiple times. I don’t know Eda personally but I know many people who do and my heart goes out to her. What happened to her I would never wish on anyone and it should never be something that women are afraid to talk about and that is swept under the rug. It’s fucking disgusting. Like she said, be safe. We shouldn’t have to constantly worry about assault or rape but unfortunately at the moment, it’s the world we live in so please be aware and do everything in your power to keep people safe. God damn, I don’t know what else to say. I wish this wasn’t a reality. I’m sorry, Eda.

Thank you to everyone who liked and reblogged this. I posted this with the intentions of merely getting it off of my chest and hopefully saving someone else from this nightmare I relive everyday. I woke up to texts/voicemails/messages from friends all over saying kind words. Some cried, some smiled out of respect for my courage, and some even thanked me because they felt like they could come out with their own stories. Please reblog this. Even more, please take care of each other. This is a reality and a fucking shitty one at that.

This is so true, yet hard to remember.
