Ask a Domestic Abuse Victim
I will answer any questions you have about what it's like to be a victim of domestic abuse and how I eventually dragged myself out of the cycle.
Please be prepared for honest answers that are not necessarily pretty.
Because people ask why I talk about it;
Personally, I've never believed that things happen for a reason. But I do believe we can take the things that happen to us and use them to better someone else's life. So I talk about my experiences- it doesn't change them, make them go away, or make them any worse. Occasionally I feel the shame and stigma of having been a victim for so long. But if that's the only cost to me to help someone else? That seems a worthwhile price.
****EDIT**** I'm seeing a lot of people save this but not ask any questions, so please let me clarify/confirm; I am NOT easily offended, and I'm not shy. I have gone through a lot to get where I am and it has made me a stronger person. I'd love to answer your questions, so please don't be afraid to ask. At the very least, say hi!
