Don't Be Afraid To Speak Up

Hello my dear readers and followers, I would like to share my story of how I came to be taking part in this event where I will be a guest speaker as a Domestic Violence Survivor and Advocate.

The host of this event Richard Oluyinka happened to be live streaming on Facebook on the subject of men who are abusive towards their wives. He was so authentic and passionate about the issue and his energy was so touching and heartfelt. 

I wasn't actually a follower of Richard on Facebook - however, another friend of mine was already friends with Richard and she knew my domestic violence story. She shared Richards' video with via Facebook.

Anyway, I watched the replay of Richards' video and I took that leap of faith and made several comments as I was just so loving his take on the matter.


A few days later, Richard contacted me and he asked me if I would like to be a speaker at the event in the above flyer.

The rest as they say is history.

I want to encourage anyone who has been, or knows of someone going through this terrible ordeal to not be afraid to speak up about this terrible issue which is destroying many lives.

If I had kept quiet, I wouldn't be having the chance to tell my story to the world to help save at least 1 life out there.

If you cannot join us in person at the event, please do join us live on Facebook on the date and time.

Thank you for your support.

What Is My Personal Story About Domestic Violence

Hi and how are you doing today? Can I assume that it's been a good one for you today?

If not, you can use the comment box below to rant a little. I won't mind as I know that there are days you just want to scream out.

So, today, we are taking a break from the videos and I'm posting instead.

I want you to know that just like you, I have a story to share - and share I will.

As a sufferer of rheumatoid arthritis(RA) which affects the dexterity in my hands, videos and live streaming works much better for me. Believe it or not, I also type at the speed of lightning - as I learnt to type about 30 years ago using the old fashioned typewriter(also learnt shorthand...although I doubt anyone still uses shorthand these days).

Therefore, even though we are taking a break from the videos, I will be posting a video of my personal story.

Look out for the video.

I am wishing you a great day from the very bottom of my heart and thanks for being here with me.

NB - maybe one day I will share…
