Q-on-1 w/Author, Complex Angel

PLAY

What is "domestic abuse"?  My guest gives us first-hand knowledge of her experience with it.

Duration: 21 mins.

*excuse the disjointed audio.  I had techinical difficulties while recording.

I'm joined by Natasha, better known as Complex Angel.  She's the author of the book No Apologies and she the host of a podcast called Self-Love Is My Rehab.  She talks with me about how she moved to another state with a man who consistently abused her physically, verbally, and emotionally.  It's a painful discussion for most people to have, but the strength that she excuded in the interview doesn't reflect hurt at all.  Nor did it reflect fear.  She was willing to answer all of my questions, such as:

  • What were some of the things he did to physically abuse her?
  • Was there something that she saw during her childhood that made her think abuse was normal in relationships?
  • How do you break the generational curse of domestic violence?
Domestic abuse statistics are staggering and I didn't want to bring them up.  Despite how obvious it may seem to those on the outside looking in, a lot of people don't know domestic abuse signs when they see them.  Hopefully, this podcast can help.

The domestic abuse hotline is: (800) 799-7233.
