      I am currently waiting to get a place on the Freedom project. I was just wondering if others have taken part in this snd how it has helped you?

      Hi yes I did it twice the 1st time I spent crying as it came to light how much my ex was in all of the personas and the 2nd I took it in and it was very helpful.

      I also noticed that I was in them to – sexual controller however I was told that as I am aware of what I did to stop the sulking or mood he was in that didnt make me a perpetrator because it was a tactic I used to stay safe but it did upset me at first, I think it was really helpful even to explore what went on.

      I’m about to start the next one – power to change hope its just as helpful.

      I have been to a few its worth going though I found it distressing it also gave me strength. Due to the hours I work I can only attend the odd one, Its not perfect but its better than nothing.

      Good Luck.

      Thank you so much ladies for the feedback. Its most helpful. I can understand it being distressing and at the same time helpful.
      I am going to give it a go and see how it goes. 🙂

      Hi starlight

      I begin the freedom programme but I don’t think I was in the right place for it as it made me more scared of my situation and sometimes put me in more danger as I could see that he was those characters and sometimes I stood up to him because of it.
      I am going to do it again when I am abit stronger as it did give me knowledge and power. I would recommend it I was just too involved in my situation.
      Good luck and let me know how you get on xx

      Thank you Moon. I am not diing it this month as apparently they are fully booked, which says alot about the men in the area, but perhaps it gives me a chance to get stronger too. Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I’ve recently finished the program, it was really difficult and the reality of the lengths he’d gone to in order to have control was very hurtful. It is clear that had I not done it or had the support from ladies on here I would have been back in the terrible situation i left and may not be here to see this year at all. I made some great friends and learned so much!
      It is hard, it’s an emotional roller coaster but it’s so worth it in the end.

      Thank you 2BFree,
      I am a little nervous about going, but think I must even though it seems like everyone says it’s an emotional roller coaster. I don’t want to go backwards, but forwards and I need to understand more and get more knowledgeable about this situation. Thank you for sharing
