I am 23 years old and the oldest of my siblings. We have witnessed some things with our parents that we have been working on to heal. It has been rough as manipulation has taken a big part in our lives. I have taken control of my journey and write about it to help me through this time. Mental Abuse has been painful and any abuse is really. Spreading the word and making the awareness of these things can help another life.
To be able to acknowledge the abuse and take control was challenging but has pushed me further as I want better for myself and my siblings and my future.
I can truly say writing has given me courage and has helped me get through this time in my life. This gives me hope to know I did the right decision and to know my voice is being heard.
Thank you for reading my story. 🙂
