Hello everyone! I am a survivor of abuse from a significant other. I am 20 years out from the incident and have never really talked about it. It is time to break the silence.

Dear Shara

Welcome to After Silence!!

I'm sorry for what you have been through.  I find it is easier to talk on forums then out loud.  Being here has helped me so much, even from the first time I ever posted.  It is still helping me - I have so much support here and I know you will, as well.  Here at AS, we are like a big family and our members are kind and non-judgemental.

I am sending you lots of safe hugs! :hug:

Take care

Welcome to AS.  

I'm sorry for the abuse you have suffered.  It was not your fault and you did not deserve it.  You are stronger and braver than you believe, and you will heal from this.  Sometimes just sharing your story with others who understand can be very helpful.  I wish you the best.
