The past month and a half have been pretty eventful to say the least and it doesn’t seem like it’s about to die down anytime soon.
The recent events have been extremely difficult to read and process. My heart goes out to all the women hurt by those vicious people.
I can only imagine how infuriating and triggering it is to many of you. It’s not a secret how often sexual crimes occur, and how all of us may have experienced it in one way or another or know someone who has. It’s a social epidemic that affects all of us, and the long-term consequences are painful. Some of us have never recovered, and some are struggling day by day to get their lives back together.
In addition, it’s understandable that those of you who are/were fans of the involved celebrities, supported them for a long time and found comfort in them, would feel terribly hurt, guilty, betrayed or upset. I would like to point out that none of this is your fault. Idols are great at putting up a front, being charming and appealing, making us believe they are one thing only to find out they are the complete opposite, or a sick twist of what they’ve been presenting. You’re not at fault for being deceived. It’s almost impossible to know what the people around you are up to in their free time, let alone a celebrity you don’t have a direct connection to.
I would like to offer my support, and help you go through this together. If you’re experiencing any sort of a breakdown, or even just need someone to talk to, feel free to contact me via PM. You don't have to go through this alone.
On the other hand, if you’re interested in offering help as well, make sure you write it down in the comments, let users know they can turn to you if they’re having a hard time. Let’s put the arguments aside for a bit and stick together as a community.
I hope you're all taking care of yourselves, and it's okay to step back if things get too much to handle.
Have a nice weekend
