Before I met my ex I was studying youth work at the University of Chester. I was in my second year when I got a part-time job at the local cinema to fit alongside my studies. I entered into a relationship with my work colleague who became the person who abused me for several years.

Digital communities have helped me through the last year with all the challenges it has brought to the table. I kept thinking about what it would have been like to go through lockdown 10-15 years ago without the technology available to keep us connected the way there is now. I feel very grateful for the communities I run but also for those I am a part of. Very Grateful, Help Me, Community, Bring It On, Feelings, 15 Years, Digital, Challenges

I am proud to announce that I have become a supporter of the National Centre for Domestic Violence and will be actively sharing the vital work they do to provide legal protection to those fleeing an abusive relationship. The work they do to raise awareness helps victims know they are not alone and can reach out for support. “You don’t need a bruise to be a victim” offers an all-important reassurance to those in emotionally abusive relationships, something that I know only too well.

This photo came up in my memories just a few days ago. A production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with my tutors and fellow students. It was way back when I was at Hull College studying Acting. I shared this story on my profile and felt it should go further, especially as I’ve received responses from all three of my tutors from the National Diploma. This is why I didn’t waste my past experiences in life...

Writing a novel sounds easy; some people believe that writing a novel is sitting at a laptop with a concrete bulletproof plan and bashing it out in a few days. But, this is a huge misconception. It is quite naive to think that it can be done in one sitting or that a writer is guided only by inspiration, and that’s what helps them pull through.

Recently I recorded a podcast with Alison Bird on why she doesn’t leave, it’s available to listen to now on the #AbuseTalk Podcast. I fell upon the hashtag #WhyIStayed and felt called to share the different reasons as to why I didn’t leave. I’m sharing them on my Twitter (@JenLGilmour) every morning at 8am over the festivities period but I feel it may go beyond that. I’m hoping it highlights the complexities of a relationship that’s abusive and shows that it’s not just as easy to leave.
