How to stay in your power around abusive and controlling people

My daughter has just started her blog and this is her first post! I’m so excited for her new adventure in blogging. I know she’s going to love it. She’s always been very good at writing. In her school years, multiple teachers advised to to ‘keep on writing’.

      2. I think the follow button appears at the bottom right of the page when on the blog. I think you have to scroll up for it to appear.

        I’m not really new to the blogging world – I think it’s been about a year and a half since I started which may be new to some people. Not sure. I love it though. Making a lot of new friends, reading about other’s lives and being able to express myself with others that may feel the same or give me different insight.
