I would like to share this platform with other survivors of Intimate Partner Violence. If you would like to share your survival story, I would be happy to write up your story in an article. This would cover all forms of abuse, including physical, sexual, emotional, psychological, financial and spiritual.
The purpose would be two-fold:
1. Free your voice, free your pain!
2. Educate, validate and liberate!
I would like your story to carry a lesson or lessons for other survivors. If you do not wish to share your whole story, or if you prefer to focus on one aspect only, that would be okay too. The main goals are to release your trauma, and to give advice and hope to others, in similar situations. This is not an opportunity to bash or publicly shame your abuser; I want the story to be about you, the survivor.
If you are interested, please email me. I will call you on WhatsApp, Telegram, Line or Messenger to take down the details of your story. This can be done over a few calls.
You will have to sign an agreement to give me permission to tell your story, and you will have to confirm that you are telling the truth. We will not disclose names of the abusers or any personal information about them, which could reveal their identities. We will simply tell your story, and the lessons you have to share. If you also wish to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym, that would be okay too. After I have written the article, you can sign off on it, if you are happy with it.
Here is a link to my story: Why Do I Shout about Women Abuse? This is an example, to give you an idea of the type of article we would be aiming to write. It could be shorter, but not longer than this.
Please remember to consider your safety and emotional stability, before agreeing to the article. However, if you agree to it, and later find the process getting too difficult for you, we can stop it. I will not force you to share anything you are not comfortable with sharing.
This offer is open to both female and male survivors of intimate partner violence. You are also welcome to tell your friends about this offer. I cannot promise to write everyone’s story but I will try my best, given time constraints and my own emotional capacity too.
This project is for healing and educational purposes. I will not ask you for any money, and I will not pay you for your story.
Please take some time to think about it, and email me when you are ready.
Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you.
