Welcome Back to Recovery, Gorgeous!
The podcast for Survivors of Violence in Australia.
Today, I've got a brave soul with me ready to share her story of Coercive Control as part of our #1000storiesforchange campaign.
Linda shares how she met her first partner and was engaged at age 18 and married not long after with two young kids - and how a serious car accident that could have been fatal, woke her to the reality of her deep unhappiness.
Linda shares her experiences of leaving multiple times, how she was further isolated after leaving by moving interstate where she had no community, family or friends to be connected with, and when the final she left, the police patrolled her neighborhood to ensure her safe leaving and living in a Women's Refuge. She also bravely shares the countless texts and phone calls she received from her then partner and the process she went through to obtain a No Contact Order through the court system.
Yes - what Linda experienced was horrible and painful. But you'll also hear the hope she has, the strength that radiates out of her, and her words of wisdom on the recovery and healing process.
