My True Story #No56

"Two years ago I had just got out of an an awful relationship...I sought validation from others as a coping mechanism. All I wanted was for someone to think of me as pretty and good enough..." - Ashley


"Two years ago I had just got out of an an awful relationship. He was controlling, verbally abusive and sexually aggressive.


After getting out of that relationship I had lost all sense of who I was, I sought validation from others as a coping mechanism. All I wanted was for someone to think of me as pretty and good enough.

But this was attracting the wrong attention from men, I thought all I had to offer the world was my sexuality.

I became a black hole of sadness, anger and confusion - until I met a wonderful man who I opened up to, he told me I should speak to a professional, which I did.


Speaking to my therapist gave me relief and closure...a year on - and the man that gave me that advice - is now the love of my life! I have never been happier. 


It gets better, but you have to be willing to help yourself x " - Ashley @theglutenfreevegan_
