Love and Boundaries: Financial Abuse_Lily’s Stories

As a young girl, Lily had always dreamed of the perfect life, complete with a loving partner, a beautiful home, and a stable job. When she met John, she thought her dreams had come true. He was charming, successful, and seemed to be everything she had ever wanted.

But as time went on, things began to change. John became increasingly controlling, both emotionally and financially. He made all the major decisions and would become angry if Lily tried to assert her own opinions. He would also control all the finances, leaving Lily with no access to her own money.

One day, after a particularly violent outburst, Lily decided enough was enough. She remembered a friend telling her about The Circle of Ma, an organization that specialized in helping victims of domestic violence and financial abuse. She found their website and reached out to them for help.

The Circle of MA provided Lily with options and helped her get back on her feet. They connected her with their counsellor who helped her process the trauma she had experienced and gave her options to rebuild her life. They also prepared her to find a job and opened a bank account in her name so she could start saving up her own money.

Lily was able to regain control of her life. She found a job and started saving up her own money. Eventually, she was able to move into her own place and start building the life she had always wanted. Lily finally breaks free from John’s abusive grip and starts living life on her own terms.
