One of my friends back home went to a party this weekend and almost got raped. The rapist is ‘J’, my ex boyfriend —for those of you that might remember. We dated like a year ago for six months. It was a really terrible relationship. We were not alike at all. He dumped me because he thought I lied about my mental health —that I was making everything up. And then he later wanted me back and in fact I got a message from him on Halloween saying “hope you’re doing well.” The audacity. Anyway. I am so sad and heartbroken for my friend. I wish I could be there for them in person because I feel like I can’t be very expressive and sentimental via texts. And I’m totally not trying to make this about me and invalidate hrs but it is also sort of affecting me because I just think, like, I let this person touch me? I let this person into my life for six months and we were “close.” I’m so angry and I’m so sad and I want to message him telling him that if he ever tries to lay a finger on one of my friends that I’ll kill him but I feel like I’d just be feeding into the situation. And I don’t want to talk to that sick fuck anyway. People are so shitty.
