I love this, and it’s unfortunately so true. I’m sorry you had similar experiences. It wasn’t an easy environment, and your story of your mom locking you out of the house is absolutely horrifying. I’m glad you’ve been out for as long as you have. It’s been 16 years since I escaped, and it’s taken me all this time before I can really write about it. Thanks for reading.
