Powerful Woman Monologue – my story

I’m posting over at Renee‘s blog today, as part of her Powerful Woman Monologues series. If you haven’t read her series, and the voices of the women who have participated, you’re missing out.

I wanted to share the fact that I’m participating in the series today because the subject matter isn’t light, and needs to be shared. When I was in high school, I was in a mentally and emotionally abusive relationship. Renee’s series prompted me to write about my experience, and how I was lucky enough to end the relationship when I did, and how I made sure to choose the right path afterwards to make sure that I became a stronger, more powerful woman from it.

Yes, I still have the scars from the relationship, 10+ years later. But I also became such a stronger person from the experience.

A big reason I shared my story is because I know from personal experience that other women have gone through the same thing as me. And sometimes they think they’re alone in it all. When I’ve reached out and shared my story, and have seen the relief wash over these women to finally realize that they’re not alone, that makes sharing my story so worth it.

Please read it. And please, don’t be afraid to ask me questions either by comment or email me if you need to.
