comment she left on my site after the incident in January.
Hi Sean Howard, Ayesha Talib Wissanji and H. Nemesis Nyx

Wow. This comment is about the best-stated explanation of grooming I’ve ever read. I look back at those who groomed me: my father; my ex-husband; and the worst of all, Jeff, and I remember the exact moment it hit me that they were something other than who they’d pretended to be all along.

I never trusted my dad, because his was never ending. But my ex, and Jeff, I had trusted implicitly. More than I’d ever trusted ANYONE (I don’t trust, as a rule). So humbling to find out everything- my whole reality-had been a lie.

Worst thing that had ever happened to me. Like the world had fallen out from under my feet and an abyss had rushed up to meet me.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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