Breaking Free: Raven’s Story of Surviving a Meddling Abuser and Finding Healing – Domestic Violence, Narcissist Abuse

Play episode

Raven is a survivor who lived through an 18-year abusive relationship. From her childhood in a dysfunctional home to her struggle with toxic relationships, Raven paints a vivid picture of her journey, offering deep insights into how her abusive partner disrupted her work, led her into financial abuse, and how her own people-pleasing tendencies played a role in her prolonged stay in a destructive relationship.

Raven’s courage shines through as she shares the tactics she used to protect herself emotionally while navigating the turbulent waters of an abusive relationship. With raw honesty, she details her battle to set boundaries, the importance of not getting emotionally hooked into her abuser, and her eventual escape. Raven’s story is not just about survival but resilience, as it took her four attempts to finally break free.
