Are you in an abusive relationship?
Could you or someone you know be in an abusive relationship and either be in denial about it or are not even aware you are in one?
Does your partner act like everything is your fault?
Does he or she embarrass you or put you down in public?
Do you make excuses for their behavior?
Do your family and friends constantly point out the red flags?
Has your self-esteem plummeted since you’ve been in the relationship?
Are you trying to figure out ways to end the relationship, but feel stuck in a toxic web?
If you’ve answered yes to one or more of these questions, open up this memoir and read it from beginning to end. You are not stuck. You can get out. There is a bright future for you to explore. You don’t deserve to remain in an abusive relationship, and owe it to yourself to live the life you’ve always wanted—filled with love and positive energy.
Darkness to Light Memoir
From Darkness to Light is a story about abuse—verbal, mental and emotional—and the fight to not only recognize it, but understand what to do about it. Based entirely on the author’s real-life experiences in an abusive relationship, the book not only addresses the levels and steps of an abusive relationship, but also the difficulty of coming to terms with the facts, and then addressing them.
Too many abused men and women refuse to admit that they’re in an abusive relationship. When they do admit that they are, they’re confronted with another wall: the challenge of finding a way out. In this memoir, the author explains her process of going from darkness to light—how challenging it was for her to admit to herself she was in a toxic situation. Three important phone calls saved her life, and forced her to realize that she needed out, and that she was the only person who could do it. Her hope is that reading the story will prompt someone—perhaps more than just one person—to realize that they can escape and move forward from a relationship like that.
