Reflections at the end of the old year and the beginning of a new one
Thank you for always taking the time to spell out the long-lasting and devastating effects of abuse, especially on us mums who are lucky to survive. To feel ‘seen’ makes such a difference because it is lonely and a relief when what is behind the brave face is acknowledged. I hope your health improves asap. Sending support and healing vibes and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year xx
Dr. Emma Katz, thank you for your scholarly work that will help many Domestic Violence victim/survivors leave abusive relationships, and arm themselves with reliable information to provide to attorneys, courts, etc...to protect their children, and self. Again, thank you for your insight to the DV field, and psychology. I hope you feel better fast. Happy New year! Kind regards
Bless you Emma. I hope your health improves.
As a survivor cum advocate (20+ yrs I’ve been advocating) I have experienced burnout. It’s no fun! The worst episode lasted 9 months, and since then I have been having intermittent relapses but they don’t last as long, they usually lift after a few days. I hope you are not going to suffer burnout. I hope those close to you will gently advise you if they see symptoms of burnout developing.
I’m so glad you used to word “enormity” correctly. Many people misuse that word for anything enormous. The correct definition is:
1. the great or extreme scale, seriousness, or extent of something perceived as bad or morally wrong.
2. a grave crime or sin.
Thank you Emma for your work and your voice. I hope the new year brings you health 💕
