‘The end of policing explains that "unfortunately, no increased diversity on police forces, nor body cameras, nor better training, has made any seeming difference" in reducing police killings and abuse. "We need to restructure our society and put resources into communities themselves, an argument Alex Vitale makes very persuasively."The problem, Vitale demonstrates, is policing itself-the dramatic expansion of the police role over the last forty years. Drawing on first-hand research from across the globe, The End of Policing describes how the implementation of alternatives to policing, like drug legalization, regulation, and harm reduction instead of the policing of drugs, has led to reductions in crime, spending, and injustice’

For books that help you learn how to put boundaries down and have healthy relationships after abuse visit

The things we know abusers do to gain control of their victim isn’t normally done all at once. So, controlling what you wear is unlikely to sound like ‘you’re not allowed to wear that’, and much more likely to sound like ‘why do you wear clothes that look so cheap, you’re so much classier than that?’. They plant seeds, little, tiny seeds, so please, at the beginning of any relationship make sure you stay true to yourself. Stay true to yourself with the small stuff, because at the end, that’s all there is.

Set yourself free!


Before my relationship with an abuser I traveled the world, built a successful business and had paid off my mortgage.

I left with bad debt, unable to rebuild my business due to being a lone parent to a traumatised child and a backpack of belongings.

I lost my identity, both internally (through years of gaslighting and abuse) and externally (changing my name, city, going into hiding).

Learning about personality disorders, abuse and how to heal has been key to my recovery.

I’m about to start my masters as education can never be lost, can never be taken away, and has the power to transform!

For books about healing after abuse visit

I’ve not liked myself over the last couple of days. I’ve been beating myself up over being imperfect, not meeting my own high expectations and feeling like a failure.

All of these feelings are common for those of us who have been hurt by an abuser. So, do I wallow in self pity, self hate and continue to be cranky, or do I make an extra special effort to look after myself?

Being compassionate, writing, meditating and unpicking what makes us feel so bad, gives us the option to face our negative self talk and use it as a step to further healing. We can stay in victim mode and become no better than our abusers, or we can face ourselves and work to heal.

A common trait of adult survivors of child abuse is perfectionism. We set the bar so high for ourselves, then make ourselves sick trying to reach it, and torture ourselves when we fall short.

Sending love and strength to all who are still trapped with their abusers or living in fear after leaving. Please reach out to your local DV centre or call 999 if you’re in immediate danger.


To read about others who have broke free from abuse and gone on to live their best lived visit



Parenting a child who spent formative years in an abusive household means sleepless nights! Years after abuse children may have frequent nightmares, feel unsafe at bedtimes or [email protected] need to stay awake and in control of their surroundings.

However, for us it can feel like torture, them them it’s ten fold. The gulf and shame they feel when they are unable to behave as ‘expected’, the fear and confusion they feel as they have physical flashbacks, and sometimes the frustration they feel from the parent who just needs sleep is another level of torture for them.
