If you feel strong enough to share your story using the #metoo hashtag, then please do, but if not please know that you are not alone and what happened to you is not your fault. Please consider your own circumstances and the affect sharing will have upon you before you go public with your story. If you choose not to share please remember you are stronger than you may think and when you are ready there will be many people who can support you.
