beauty in the ugly truth 

tw: rape 

my friend came clean about a time she was taken advantage of. I knew the guy. he goes to these house shows i go to every two weeks.

I’ve taken his picture before where he posed with my brother and a close friend. she was scared and nervous about opening up because her boyfriend plays at the house shows and doesn’t want anything to jeopardize that and that’s how I know she is strong. I came forward with the owner of the house about this guy. I told him about how he used to touch my friend and how she was only 14 and he was 17 and it made me queasy just telling him the story of a girl I didn’t even know at the time. she can feel safe again and have fun again and walk around knowing that everyone knows. she is so strong and i admire that. the owner thanked me and told me how much he appreciated me and that’s when I realized that the world can sometimes be a beautiful place with beautiful, strong people and it sometimes makes it all have meaning again. I felt like I did good today.
