I am a talented, beautiful, funny woman who has reached the American dream in many peoples eyes, yet I live with a terrible secret, I live with an emotionally abusive man. I choose to stay in my marriage, while working on me. I cannot change Charlie. I can only change me. Some days are good and some are disasters. I lean on God to help me through those valleys. I am not alone.
I am from the east coast of the USA. I am a survivor of domestic violence. I still live with my emotional abuser, but I have learned that I have the right to set out boundaries and stand up for myself. My wish is to be a voice for those who haven’t found theirs yet, and to encourage others to find strength to stand up for themselves for they matter. If anyone has a story about living in abuse, now or in the past and would like to share it email me at:
