I’m Vivian McGrath, a successful television Executive Producer. I tell other people’s stories in documentaries for major British, US and Australian TV networks. Now I’m ready to tell my own. It’s a story many of my colleagues don’t even know about me.
I was just 22 and seven months pregnant the day my Ex nearly killed me. He squeezed his hands tightly around my throat, his eyes fixed in a cold, murderous stare. A voice cried out. It was mine, but it wasn’t me. A horrific rasping sound, squeezed out on my final desperate breaths of air, was begging him for my life. I thought I was about to die that day.
When I found the courage to leave that destructive relationship, I walked out with nothing but my baby and what could fit in my car. I had to rebuild my life as a single mother. It was one of the darkest, toughest times
of my life.
But that’s just a small part of my story. Yes, I’m a survivor of domestic violence. But I’m not defined by it. The more important part of my story is its happy ending. How I went from being a victim to a survivor. From a survivor to a success story. Forging success in life, love and my career.
The power to change it was within me all along. You have that power to rewrite your story as well.
I guess you’re here because you feel – or have felt – like I once did:
- Unsure if you’re even in an abusive relationship?
- Your gut is telling you to ‘leave’, but your heart is saying: ‘I love them’?
- You feel trapped, with no way out?
- You’re wondering how love can hurt this much?
- You love the person you fell in love with, but don’t like who they’ve become.
- You’re just hoping and wishing they would change?
- You’re living a life that’s not you?
- You want the ‘old me’ back?
I know your pain. But it doesn’t have to be this way. I’ve been there, done that and learnt the hard way. I can be that person for you. The one I wish I had to guide me through it when I was feeling as you are now.
