About Love Should Not Hurt

Love Should Not Hurt: Letting Go of the Pain to Live in Freedom is my story as a domestic violence survivor as well as my story of how I let my emotions get the best of me after I left my abuser. You will hear my journey and possibly relate to my decision to push down the 6 years of my violent relationship and never think about it again.

Unfortunately, the human mind does not work like that. You cannot take trauma or feelings of stress and just bottle them up. Those emotions will eventually come back to haunt you as it did with me and even caused stress on my current marriage almost 10 years after my escape! 

This book is more about emotions than my story of my abusive relationship. I hope to help those that struggle with the decision to open up find the need to seek help and talk to a counselor. I also want those who live with someone depressed or withdrawn to understand what does and does not work to get through to a closed mind. I healed in the worst way, but then eventually I came to realize that Love does not have to hurt!

Congratulations on publishing your first ebook!

Congratulations on your book and thank you for telling your story. We need to have more people tell of their success through domestic violence so that other women going through the same thing can have hope and know that they have options.
