@ianrichiee said, “We all equally go through violence in as much as we are from different society setups..As a gentleman..I was from a very toxic relationship where I came to realise that I was extremely being manipulated physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically all in the name of being “so in love” with my partner.

“ALL I can say is that, nobody should remain in a toxic relationship, as the toxic partners knows exactly what they are doing hurting you intentionally. Let’s normalize leaving toxic relationships to find our peace. It’s time we find joy in being ourselves and showcasing the realest part of us by being bold : SAYING NO when it’s time to say no… We live in a world full of charm , happiness and adventure and we deserve better. Happiness is not out there, it’s in you.🤍🤎🍫💕,” concluded @ianrichiee.
