Hey there, I’m Bobbie, and I’m thrilled to welcome you to my little corner of the internet where we dive deep into the often challenging and intricate topics of domestic violence and narcissistic abuse. While my journey has been far from ordinary, it’s what has led me to this space of healing, learning, and empowerment. So, let’s get to know each other better, shall we?
The Story Behind the Blog
My path to becoming a Licensed Master of Social Work, with a Master’s degree in Social Work and a Bachelor’s in Social Work from the University of North Dakota, wasn’t a straightforward one. In fact, it was marked by a deeply personal and harrowing experience that has shaped my life and career. You see, for 15 years, I was trapped in a marriage with a malignant narcissist.
Now, you might be wondering how a licensed social worker could end up in such a situation. Well, that’s where the power of narcissistic manipulation and abuse comes into play. These individuals have an uncanny ability to conceal their true selves and slowly erode their partner’s self-esteem, self-worth, and autonomy.
My Unique Perspective
Through my own personal struggle, I gained an intimate understanding of the complexities of domestic violence and narcissistic abuse. I know what it’s like to walk on eggshells, to doubt your own reality, and to feel utterly isolated in a relationship. And I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone.
I created this blog to share my experiences, insights, and professional knowledge. My goal is to provide a safe space where you can find solace, resources, and guidance, whether you’re a survivor, a concerned friend or family member, or simply someone seeking to understand these issues better.
Why I’m Committed
You might be wondering why I’m so passionate about this topic. Well, it’s simple: my personal struggle became my driving force. It was a catalyst for me to channel my expertise and compassion into a mission of raising awareness about domestic violence and narcissistic abuse.
I firmly believe that knowledge is power, and through education and support, we can break free from the chains of abuse and start the journey toward healing and rebuilding our lives.
