Celebrity TikTok star Loren Gray speaks out about her childhood saying she was sexually abused at a very early age of 13 in a post she shared
She spoke about her struggle living with the taught at that tender age and how she survived saying I came out stronger and I’m so proud of myself.
“I want to tell you my real story, TW. When I say you have helped me more than you know, I truly mean it. This is me, over five years ago, not long before my 13th birthday, At this time, I had my innocence stolen from me in the basement of someone I trusted. I only told one person and to this day she remains my best friend. We cried in my bathroom together for hours.”
“I struggled to put the pieces together as to why this had happened to me. It took two months for me to finally tell my parents. I felt dirty, hopeless, broken and worthless. I was confused and scared. I felt like it was my fault.”
“I was homeschooled, and began making videos to pass the time and ease some of the loneliness and isolation I had felt. People were watching my videos and although I was still struggling, I felt like I had finally found people who cared, regardless of my situation, Although, every now and then the comments and questions would be too much. She looks like a whore. ‘Are you a virgin?”
“but now i realize that my past does not define me. It was never my fault, and I never deserved it. I came out stronger and I’m so proud of myself. There is light at the end of the tunnel, and if my story can help even ONE person, then to me it’s a story worth telling.”
“Although I was forced to grow up quickly and lost a part of me in the process, I wouldn’t change anything about my life. Every experience I’ve had has taught me something about myself. This one taught me how strong I truly am, and how much I’m capable of overcoming,” she wrote. “Although I hate that I felt forced into sharing this prematurely, I have no regrets because I am no longer ashamed.”
“Just wanted to say I’m sorry for not being online much today,” Gray said. “It’s been really difficult for me to share this part of my life in such a public way. I received a message that somehow someone knew. But I know how fast word travels and I wanted to be the one to tell my story.”Fortunately, Gray did see a silver lining in sharing her own trauma.
“I’m overwhelmed by the amount of support and love that I have felt today,” she explained. “But it also breaks my heart how often this happens. I”m very lucky that i have such supportive friends and family, who never judged or placed blame. I’m very grateful. Although I was forced to grow up quickly and lost a part of me in the process, I wouldn’t change anything about my life, every experience I’ve had has taught me something. Although I hate that I felt forced into sharing this prematurely, I have no regrets because I am no longer ashamed.”
