Before her death, Braxton wrote an inspirational and emotional blog post to help raped women recover and move on and included her own tragedic story of sexual abuse.
“With my experience, I blamed myself terribly for about a month,” she wrote in the heartfelt article published on her sister’s blog The Good Girls Movement. I thought it was so much I should’ve done that could have prevented it. I didn’t think it was rape because I thought it was my fault, but I knew I felt disgusting. Empty. Disposable. Violated. Sick. Traumatized. Alienated.”
She continued, “I did not understand why I was feeling the way I was feeling. I started feeling a heavy weight on my spirit every morning.”
