It seems like common reasons for not telling anyone is fear, love, family, shame, isolation, and money. All are common "because..." to the unfortunate "why didn't you tell me". Victim shaming sucks. I was young, I was vulnerable, and I was in the wrong place at the wrong time - for a long time. Once day I want to say I am not ashamed and I am not to blame. For now, I recognize those thoughts will take time to accept. Until then, I cope, I cry, I hold on when I need to -- and I advance when I can.
