Serenity was 20 years old and four months pregnant when she met her abuser. He was 34 years old and a millionaire. Over the course of their 12 year relationship, Serenity endured physical violence, sexual coercion, financial manipulation, putdowns, isolation, and gaslighting. The damaging impact of this abuse inflicted a tremendous amount of stress on her mental and emotional health. From constant hyper vigilance, to body disconnection and memory loss, to suicidal ideation, Serenity battled these issues until the day she finally escaped.
Listen to Serenity as she shares her message of liberation, validation for survivors, her process of breaking free from manipulation, and the solace she found in the stories of other survivors. This powerful conversation is sure to move you, shedding light on the realities of toxic relationships and the path to healing.
