I Was Abused and It's Ok To Talk About It
Alana shares her story about being physically and emotionally abused by her boyfriend/finance. I'm ready to talk about this and normalize this conversation she tells Scott. I'm not going to hide from it. I want people to know there is something on the other side that is hopeful and good. This experience and all that I've learned from it is something I can use for good.
Alana talks about who this person was to her, the impact he had on her life, what is was like to be her father, how it felt to explain this to the police and who she is today because of it.
Dating violence of any kind isn’t something to be ashamed of and it’s not something you have to face alone. There are so many resources for you to safely and privately get the help or information you need. The National coalition against Domestic Violence can be found at http://ncadv.org or call 303-839-1852. You are worthy.
