Your stories | To the brave women with the strongest hearts

I have been reading all of your stories for the last 5 hours (it is now 02:54am) these stories have filled my heart and overwhelmed my mind. Tonight I have read the most difficult real life stories, I have ever heard and I believe every word I have read; it is disgusting that you have been through such sordid and horrifying experiences… I am a woman and I hear you and I care. We are supposeed to be safe here in the UK and living in what is protrayed as a modern world.

To all the narcissistic abusers and weak excuses of men, that have been talked about here names protected for legal reasons, your shadows will find you, when you look in the mirror; you will not hide from you own realities. Real men do not treat women like in these stories, real men grow from a mother’s son, growing into a kind, loving and caring men, who become partners or husbands, fathers, some grandfathers. The narcissists in these stories have become shadows of their own making, they are mentally strong, mis-guided belief that physicality carries you far. Some of your cruel abusive behaviour seems un-human; I dont think most could not even begin to imagine the pain and horrors you have put these women through, but your day will come.

To all the women who have shared these stories, I am proud of you writing and sharing your stories freeing yourself from the narcissists and starting your journeys. As your story is now on a platform to be heard and shared with millions of men and women, who will forever see the words you have written and this is a testimony and true account of very feelings and emotions; all the pain you have been put through. As readers know we believe your words and salute your strength and you have love here. What you have dug and found sought, from the bottom of your stomach when you had nothing left inside you.. is Huge its Big so so so BIG.. narcissists can never feel that, they don’t know how to, they are not made of the same heart and soul of all you female warriors; whilst there is no need to hope (as your journey of healing has no room) their…. karma will find each and everyone of them of them in time ♡
