  2. Hello!! Welcome to AS. I'm glad you found your way here. You'll find a lot of really kind and supportive people on the forums. It's a great idea to find healthy ways to cope like this. I'm so sorry for what you've gone through. You didn't deserve any of it. It can be so hard to handle, which is why we go to those unhealthy coping mechanisms...but I'm proud of you for being in recovery. ❤️ What a huge step in healing! Hehe I'm 32, and I'm told I look 21, so it seems like we are both of the younger-looking types. 😄 Always a nice compliment I think lol. I hope your enjoyment for your hobbies
  3. Hello and welcome to AS, @Irisdescent_fly! I'm glad you found your way here and got the courage to write your first post. It is difficult to open up to a new community. But you're in the right place...we're all very supportive and friendly. I'm glad that you made that decision one year ago to leave your abusive boyfriend. Congratulations! That is huge. It is a big, big step that is not easy to do whatsoever. I'm glad that you've been finding lots of support systems and healthy coping skills like meditation and yoga. Very proud of you for all of this. I wish you all the best in writing that l

  11. Welcome to AS, @positivevibe! I'm glad you found your way here. I'm sorry about what you've experienced, though. You didn't deserve any of it.

  12. Welcome to AS! I'm sorry about the trauma you've experienced, and that you just had a traumaversary. That's really a shame that your ex wife got off like that. Sadly, oftentimes the abusers get off so easily...and those of us that have suffered the abuse still have to deal with the pain. I'm so sorry. The justice system can be so messed up sometimes. Sending you lots of support. I'm glad you found your way here...you're not alone. I wish you well. You'll find a lot of supportive and kind people here! -Finch

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry that the person tried contacting you again. That is very frightening. All of the emotions and memories pop up...I've been there before. Please stay safe. Block them if you can. Take your time exploring the site. I wish you all the best. Sending you support!! -Finch
