As much as I’d love to give you my full identity, I decided to stay Anonymous. The devastating trauma I went through and how I can help others is more important than getting recognition for who I am. Maybe one day I will reveal my true identity. I AM A SURVIVOR. And that’s all you need to know for now…
Like many, I had experienced all forms of abuse in a relationship by my partner: physical, mental, emotional, sexual and financial. I had no idea what I was going through at the time due to lack of knowledge and awareness. It wasn’t until after I had escaped that I learned about Narcissism, Psychopaths and Sociopaths. I never thought that I could be a victim until I was one. I was so naive.
Because of this, I wanted to write about my journey and share my story with you. I discovered that it is one of my life’s purpose to bring awareness about this extremely sensitive topic. I’ll know I have done that if I have touched your heart in some way, brought an epiphany, or even taught you anything.
For those of you who have or are currently going through domestic violence or abuse from someone of any kind, please know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE. You bring so much to this world even if it doesn’t feel like it. You are amazing. You are beautiful. And you deserve the best. I love you.
