Starting Here

This isn’t the beginning, in fact, this has been a work in process. It always is.

I have no name and no face because I want to make it easier for people to relate without getting distracted by name and face.

Healing takes time. It’s been a little over 10 years since I left the domestic abuse relationship. My story may not be the same as yours, but I’m hoping you can relate.

What do I want you to know?

Well, for starters, I want you to know that you’re not alone. In the darkness, when you’re afraid, when you are just trying to make it through the night, know that I’ve been there, too. Just because our society has made domestic abuse, porn addictions, and the like “taboo” doesn’t mean that people aren’t affected and hurt on a daily basis.

None of us are alone.

So why am I here? I want to be able to anonymously share my story with you in hopes that you will be able to find the healing that you need. Oh dear reader, you deserve both freedom and healing. It isn’t your fault and nothing you’ve done could have caused you to “deserve” what you’ve gotten. Don’t believe that lie. You’re worth so much more. And if anyone hasn’t told you today, you are loved, you are cherished, you are important, you are beautiful, you are worthy. Hold on, the dawn is breaking forth.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
