Welcome to Aufrecht

Sexual Abuse Survivor came to life when I and my sister made a decision to move on and recover. We were sexually abused as children, and for years, we have chosen to not speak a word about it. However, healing is not possible without letting the truth out. We decided to share our story to the public and got surprised to know how many other women share the same sentiments and dark pieces of the past.

This platform is established to make a safe place for all the survivors and let them share their stories, no matter how painful, anonymously. We believe that after letting it out, recovery follows. We aim to create a safe and supportive environment for all the women out there who share the same secrets that are usually viewed as unspeakable. We encourage everyone to think otherwise and consider it a necessary step towards healing and complete freedom. Your story could influence other survivors to recover and move on as well.

If you believe in the same cause, contact us and share your story of no more than 1000 words. The stories will all be featured anonymously.

Story 1

My sister had this boyfriend whom she’s been with for years. He’s almost already a resident in the house as he comes over almost daily. He brings me and my little brother food and sometimes toys. My sister loves him so much. One night, he came over, but my sister was out. He came to my room and asked me where she is, and I uttered an “I don’t know”. Then, he left and used the bathroom but came back again. He brought my sister’s laptop and asked me if I wanted to watch a movie. It was around 8pm, and I didn’t feel sleepy yet, and so I agreed ...

Story 3

I don’t remember my entire childhood, but I will never forget the fragments of the past that I now find not just disturbing but downheartedly dreadful. It happened almost every bath time. I don’t know why mom never thought of it as weird, but I remember dad always insisting to give me my bath each night. I remember other moms from my school saying how lucky mom was for having such a hands-on husband. My dad gets along well with other kids in my school. Apparently, he loves kids. I remember him asking me if it felt good, and to me, it wasn’t painful. I no longer remember how many ...

My parents got divorced when I was 11. Just a year after, my mom remarried to a banker who had an adult son and a 7-year old daughter. His daughter and I got along well, and my new brother was also nice. Months after we moved to our new house in Oakland, we all celebrated as we received the news that mom was pregnant. We were happy. One day, I got sick and couldn’t attend my sister’s recital. I was so sad since I know they’re visiting my grandma’s place after. Our parents couldn’t miss out on that school activity, and so I was left alone at home with my ...
