October is domestic violence awareness month 💜 and I will be periodically talking about it this month, and forever really! Because it isn't talked about enough.
This is my best friend in the world and my little sister. She was in an abusive relationship for about 2 years and was 'lucky', I use that term very loosely, to get out of it ok.
Usually abuse doesn't happen in just one way. If there is physical, there is often also psychological, emotional, and sexual. Each situation is different but also the same. Each woman (and man, because that isn't talked about enough!) can relate to another's story because abusers manipulate and belittle in similar ways.
There is a link in my bio to Michelle's unique, but very much so not unique story. Go check it out so we can talk about abuse more and make it less shameful for men and women!
There is no shame in being a victim, survivor, and thriver. None.
