Hello Danielle, Dear,

Welcome to World Pulse. I wish it was on better terms for you, but you're in the right place. It seems, unfortunately, I've heard this story before. Please don't your decisions, and self, for one more minute! You did what you had to do and you have all the support and love from our community. Please be careful around this narcissistic man. He's done a number on you, but you are strong. I'm very proud of you for being so brave to leave him and take care of yourself and your baby. I hope, personally, that you stay away from. You, and your baby, don't deserve this! I hope you know this. I also hope you know he most likely won't change, even if says that he will. I also think when you return to your home, if it's safe, that you should consider putting a restraining order on him. I would hate for anything to happen to you or your family.

Please keep us posted, dear, and please stay safe!

Dear Danielle,
I am so sorry, that you have been so betrayed and abused. I am so sorry that because you loved, you are now not safe. I am sorry that as you mourn your physical hurt, you also mourn the death of a love that you thought would last.
I am glad that you recognised his controlling behaviour and had enough courage to move to a safe place, because you need to be safe so you can focus on getting your emotions together to calm down and silence the negative thoughts brought by the trauma.
When we go through a shocking and traumatic experience like that, we can forget who we are. We can feel like it' s our fault, we can doubt our worth and capability. Please don't blame yourself. It wasn't your fault that he hurt you. and know that you are a woman of worth, and that you have immense dignity and value, even if the man you thought was the one failed to see that.
Please know that you are worthy of real pure love, that you are worthy of respect, that you are worthy of physical and emotional safety, and don't let his anger cloud your view of your beautiful, loving self.

I hope that you do what you need to do to remain safe, and ensure that he will not endanger your life or that of your children
I hope that you get better soon, both inside and outside, and that you can still enjoy the rest of the pregnancy in spite of what has happened. Feel free to reach out here any time. Your global sisters stand with you.

Sending love, prayers, hugs and sparkles :)

Oh dear Danielle, you made an important first step to free yourself from a violent relationship. Did you report this incident to the police? Did you ask for a protection order so that he cannot go anywhere near you? Is there a women’s group or a VAW hotline where you can get information on what to do? What are your plans?
I hope you can find someone or a group whom you can discuss with regarding your options and next move. Remember, what is important is SAFETY FIRST. Allow yourself to be free from any form of abuse. Love yourself. Your children and the one who truly loves you wish the best for you. Free from harm. Free from the controlling behaviour of any person. You can do it. You are a brave woman. I will pray for you and your baby. Thank you for trusting us with your story. World Pulse is here for you.

Let me send you lots of hugs and care first. I am so relieved that you recognize your perpetrator and get out of the toxic and violent relationship. Please explore if there is any organization nearby you who can give you the required help may be medical help or shelter or any organization that can help you. Nothing is important than your health and safety now sister and i hope and wish that there will be an organization like that. Please do take care and keep update if possible. We are with you.

In solidarity,

Hello, Keri,

Welcome to World Pulse! Thank you for courageously opening up your story. The first thing that came into my mind when you describe your baby's father is that he is a narcissist, dear. He love-bombed you, then gaslighted you, and even turned his family into flying monkeys. Typical narc situation, dear.

Please feel free to reach out. It is not your fault that you fell in love with him. Please let us know you are safe.
