I didn't have a childhood

A story of a child isolated by a controlling parent.
"Kids who walk on eggshells around their parents are masters of stealth from a young age..."

They didn't judge me

A relationship that started quickly, escalating into controlling behaviour and physical violence, and friends and agencies providing support to leave.

For you and me

A year has gone by and so much has changed - I've learned so much especially the importance of knowing your worth and loving yourself deeply.

Intervening Safely

If you're witnessing an abusive or potential abusive event, before you get involved, ask yourself if it’s safe.  If the situation is already physically violent or looks like it’s escalating quickly, don’t directly intervene. Call the Police.  The only effective bystander intervention is a *nonviolent one*.  If you try to “rescue” a victim or fight off an abuser, you’ll not only be endangering yourself, but the abuser might take out their anger on the victim later making them possibly more isolated and less likely to seek help later on.
