When you finally realize that you’ve been a victim of Family Violence at the hands of a malevolent, calculating abuser, someone you cared for and loved unconditionally, finding the words to understand the methodical gaslighting, deliberate smearing and significant losses you’ve endured and then to be able to understand, express and heal from your trauma can be especially challenging. Language has the power to hurt, but language also has the power to heal. The acrostic poems in Books 2 and 3 of the TRUE DECEIT FALSE LOVE series of books provide information on and an emotional, experiential response to many terms & phrases on Domestic Violence, Narcissistic Abuse & Parental Alienation. Reading and creating these acrostic poems will provide much-needed validation as you reflect on what you’ve been through while you connect the dots to your own experiences. Writing can help make sense of your emotions and experiences and can be extremely therapeutic on your healing journey. In time, the abuser’s mask slips, and with your own research and creative outlet, you will come to understand the truth, find your survivor’s voice, reclaim your authenticity and live a blessed and happy life filled with abundance, gratitude, peace and love.
