You are most welcome!

I think we need to change the conversation around this. I know so many people who describe abusive relationships but won’t put that label on it. I’ve rarely heard straight men, for instance, refer to their relationships as abusive — even when emotional abuse was clearly happening. There are so many stigmas around it, and I’m pretty sure that the person I described in this article would dispute the fact that he was abusive, despite all evidence to the contrary.

It took me a long time to own my experience as a victim of abuse, then a survivor of it. Recovery is an ongoing process, but I would love to see more articles calling out abuse and less calling abuse narcissism.

Thank you so much for reading!
