I Found Out the Hard Way There is No Such Thing as a “Free Ride”
I was reeling from my divorce and dissolved friendships. He was a millionaire with an offer I couldn’t refuse—a spectacular trip to the Indian Ocean business class. My parents said it was a bad idea. I said: “I’m a grown woman. I can make my own decisions.” They were right. Before long, the dream vacation quickly escalated into a nightmare. I was used, abused, and frightened to death. Somehow, I managed to get the hell out of there, alive. I’m not proud of this part of my life, but I was deceived by a devil donning a mask. I’m Still Standing and I want women everywhere to understand that those who abuse you are cowards, don’t give them the power they crave. Be brave, stand up for yourself, and find a new happy life!
Read Still Standing by Vicki Fitzgerald and M.G. Crisci, a remarkable story of resilience and survival, an honest portrayal of one woman’s life, and her determination for a new beginning.
