“My parents just sat with me and talked about how proud they are that I have the courage to stand up for myself and separate from an abusive partner and that I have been able to not fall for his less anymore for over a month now. They told me how much they care about me and how they know it's hard for me but they are there whenever I need help or advice. I love them so much for understanding me and giving me space in their lives and hearts and home in this difficult time.”
