I’ve Not Been Freshly Pressed

I have been nominated for the “I’ve not been Freshly Pressed Awardby Let Me Reach with Kim Saeed.

Kim provides useful and much needed facts and information concerning relationships with narcissistic partners and is an avid supporter of those who are in such relationships.  In addition, her publishing has helped me and countless others in their quest for freedom from such individuals helping them claim once again the life they deserve.  Kim is a true asset to her readers at WordPress.

I have been a member for just under a month and I have noticed thus far that freshly pressed publications about domestic violence are nowhere to be found.  This may not be the case considering I am new to the site, however, it is an issue of epidemic proportions and worthy of being shared.  The more exposure to the issue of domestic violence the greater the chances of reaching those hurting in silence.

Although getting “Freshly Pressed” would be awesome, I feel I have not earned my stripes just yet, therefore, the ultimate goal is to share my testimony with others who may be experiencing domestic violence.  To let them know they are not alone.  And hopefully give them the courage and the tools necessary to either report suspected abuse or to escape their abuser altogether.

Since joining WordPress I have received support that would have been impossible elsewhere and for that I am truly grateful.

Thank you again let me reach, you are a true inspiration in my road to recovery!
