Mother | Blogger | Animal Lover & Advocate | 1950’s Vintage Enthusiast

First and foremost, I am a mother to a young boy. I enjoy watching him grow from strength to strength, developing into his own character. His smile melts my heart and he knows it!

A Domestic Abuse survivor, I write about real life events, explaining what I went through, how it effected me, how I escaped, positive quotes, plus more.

I am also an Animal Advocate. I have always loved animals, but decided to ‘be their voice’ after my (ex) husband murdered my kittens out of spite.

Much Love ❀

    • You’re welcome. It’s difficult to read how wide spread this is. But, it needs to be put out there for all to see, otherwise it’ll never stop. Thank you for replying.


  3. I agree about airing such a topic, as all to often such painful matters are brushed under the carpet or simply ignored. Whether or not such issues will be fully resolved is a matter of time, but I hope that at least some degree of resolution can occur. Be brave, be strong, and carry on writing. Yours is a very worthy cause.

    Stand Strong You Are Not Alone
    I call you a survivor, because that is what you are. There are days when you don’t feel like a survivor and there are days when the memories trigger your past and it feels like you are losing the fight – but you are not. Take the past and heal with it. You are strong. I want you to know that the abuse was not your fault. It does not matter what age it happened. You did not deserve it, you did not cause it, and you did not bring it on yourself. You own no shame, guilt, or remorse. In your life, you have faced many demons but look around you and you will see there is hope, and there is beauty. You are beautiful, You are loved, there is hope. You deserve to be loved and treated with respect. You deserve peace and joy in your life. Don’t settle for anything less than that. God has plans for you. Your future does not have to be dictated by your past.
    Each step you take you are not alone.
    Stand Strong.

  7. Hi Persia

    A playwright and writer friend of mine recently invited me to be involved with the Writing Process Tour, whereby writers who blog are invited to discuss their trade and work before passing the baton on. My blog post regarding this topic is at http://bublicksblog.org/2014/06/02/writing-process-blog-tour/
    And you are invited to reply to the four following questions
    1. What am I working on
    2. How does my work differ from others of its genre
    3. Why do I write what I do
    4. How does my writing process work
    I would like to pass on the baton to you, as I feel your blog and writing deserves more recognition, but if you do not wish to participate in this blog tour, please let me know (if possible) so that other bloggers can be offered a chance to participate in the chain
    Regards Chris Wilson @ bublicksblog.org

  11. I’m so sorry that so many people will never know how to give love, however, I’m so pleased to hear about people like your good self who manage to escape their abuser. I hope life remains wonderful for you and all those others who escaped their tormentors.


  12. Hello hi ..!!
    Came across your blog, and it was really captivating…!!
    Nice meeting you πŸ™‚
    And hoping to stay in touch !!


  13. Loved your post on dual national. I am American and my husband a Brit. I remember getting hassled all the time in the UK when I lived there as a perm resident. Can’t wait to brings sons who were born in the states back to the uk πŸ˜‰ great posts.

    • Thanks! I just don’t get the hassle. They really don’t have their priorities in order! I wish you luck. It will be interesting to know what happens when you do bring your sons over.
      Have a great day πŸ™‚


  14. Hi Persia, Thank you for stopping by and liking my post Narcissism and Spiritualism in Cynthia Bond’s Ruby. It’s supposed to be a draft–I’m not finished with it yet. The full post will be posted by Monday. πŸ™‚

  17. I am horrified by what your ex monster did to your kittens. His soul is black. Cruelty to animals is a sign of psycopathy, as you know and I am sure you are doing better for being away from him. May I offer a big hug? It is coming from someone who has stepped away at the very first, tentative signs of danger. Thanks to women like you who speak out and say, “that’s not right,” I’ve learned that I am not obliged to put up with anything. You’re incredibly beautiful.

    • Thank you for stopping by my blog. After I left him, I found out that he had been cruel to animals from the age of six. The best thing I ever did regarding him was definitely to walk away. Something I’ll never regret. My son has a ‘normal’, happy life, and for that, I am grateful.
      Hugs are good! Thank you for the offer – I accept. πŸ™‚
      I am glad you stepped away. Many find it very hard to do so. Although I have not been writing much recently (due to internet issues, which have now been resolved), the purpose of my blog is to encourage others to be strong. To hold on because there is light at the end of the tunnel. Not to lose hope when all is dark.
      Thank you for your kind and lovely comment. I look forward to reading your blog posts.
      Much love. xx

      • These are inspiring words from a beautiful person. It’s always the sensitive caring ones who have to be on watch for opportunists. I’ve learned that there is no such thing as a naturally fair return on emotional investment. We have to start making demands. I’m doing my part to end the cycle of something for nothing. x

      • Oh absolutely. And if you we don’t try to end the cycle, we will be guilty of turning a blind eye to the truth. I tend to try to ‘fix’ an irreparable person/situation, but end up being torn down and left drained. The key is to never stay down. Ever. Get back up and know your worth. It looks like you already do. πŸ™‚
        I wish you the very best along your journey. I will be there with you in Spirit.
        I hope you are enjoying your day. ❀

  18. Hi there,
    Just wanted to say that I nominated you for the Blogger Recognition Award! πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoy the experience as much as I did!


  19. This is a lovely blog, Persia, such a useful resource and source of encouragement for those of us who are recovering from the damage wreaked to our lives by a sociopath, in my case clandestinely over a period of 14, or possibly more, years. What’s most amazing is how these malevolent individuals can operate so covertly, remaining undetected and unsuspected by almost everyone around them.Thank you for being a source of hope and inspiration.
