Join a rising number of sisters who are stepping up to share their stories.
Together we can bring to light the seriousness of emotional abuse. Advocate for the power of self-love. Inspire other women around Aotearoa to settle for the healthy relationships they deserve. We can create change.
Every time a new story is shared on our blog, our inbox is flooded with messages from young women in our country. Young women who are inspired to make a higher choice for themselves. For their lives. For their relationships. That is a story worth sharing.
Yes, it is scary. It is also liberating.
The brave and courageous women who've shared their stories before you will affirm that!
We're waiting for you to join us. Are you ready?
I am a true believer that everything happens for a reason. I believe I was meant to go through what I did - in order to learn and grow from it.
"Younger me would never have even considered for a moment that there could be such a thing as a journey towards self-love. I had always assumed that self-love was something that other women and girls were born with."
Love yourself enough to set boundaries that will attract the love and respect you deserve. It may be hard work but trust me it is really worth it in the end.
Mum, when I've fought some of my toughest battles, you were always my guiding light. I know that I am a warrior, because I am cut from the same cloth as you.
I’m a very proud Mum of a incredibly confident, self-assured, kind and funny young lady who has overcome difficulties with strength.
Self-love to me is everything and is ever growing. It means doing what is best for you. Self-love is confidence, kindness and true happiness.
I believe in prioritising your own needs and looking after your holistic health. That's how you bring the best version of yourself to any of your relationships.
Self-love is important to me. I want to make a change. I want to be a voice for women and men because we all need to help each other.
It is noticeable when someone has a strong love for themselves, it radiates through them and it makes them so much more confident.
My story has shaped me into this confident, courageous and happy woman. I am proud that I have the courage to share my story.
We all have pasts, we all have previous relationships, previous mistakes, but that doesn’t have to define what love means for you now.
When it comes to love, I value honesty and communication. If you truly love someone you’ll tell them the truth even if it might upset them.
I think the best thing you did was leave him. There was a change in your attitude. You were finally free and that made me really happy to see.
