One of the most amazing things about the internet is the safe and supportive communities it has provided for so many people needing to get out of abusive situations. I’ve personally known quite a few people for whom internet communities were the only sanity in their life, and the only safe place they had to discuss their concerns and realize how bad their situation was.
Oftentimes, local friends and family don’t believe an abused person’s story because the abuser “is so nice”, or they don’t want to get caught in the middle. I love being part of an era where a person can get the emotional support they need to get out of bad situations from people thousands of miles away.
That is truly incredible.
