As she states in her video, she is a survivor of domestic violence or IPV (intimate partner violence). She never expected it would be a part of her. Instead, she would like to live alone and get lost in the love of alcohol. Then she elaborated about the person who harassed her, “He was a loving and caring person. He attracts you towards himself like a magnet. You cannot ignore him. He is funny, alluring, manipulative, devious and adorable.”

After this, she explained how she feels about the experience currently. It’s not still easy for her to analyse what she was thinking and feeling that kept her from stopping what felt like a rampant cargo train, she added. It didn’t matter that she had misgivings, whether or not he was the special one at the time. It felt perfect how much he yearned for her. How much he seemed to treasure who she was. He loved her. She believed loving him and was ready to make it act.
