Love Should Not Hurt: Letting Go of the Pain to Live in Freedom
by: Erin Sluka

Thank you for visiting!

I am giving away a copy of my new release book. This is not a how-to guide, but more of a way to share my story of my survival as a domestic abuse victim and what it took to leave and stay away from my abuser. It discusses the effects that last a long while after living through such a relationship. I did not heal the right way and I discuss this in my book.

Love Should Not Hurt is not just for victims, but for anyone who is a fan on non-fiction and would like to learn about how one becomes a victim, why we stay, the dangers of leaving and the healing effects after the escape. It is a short read that I hope begins the discussion with someone you may know who is struggling. From my book, I hope it can be used as a starting point to encourage victims and families to seek proper help because without the proper guidance, the effects of abuse are long-lasting and a difficult internal struggle as you adjust to a life of freedom.

I hope you will enter to win and share this with your friends and families. The topic of domestic violence needs a voice and you can be a voice! Without discussions, it remains a topic many don't wish to discuss and solve.

  1. Here in South Carolina we top the list of states for women who die as a result of domestic violence, yet our lawmakers cannot even agree to deny those who have been convicted of domestic violence guns. How sick is that?

  3. I hope this book brings some courage and strength to all those who suffered from the mental, physical, and emotional damage of domestic violence. I've been there too and I believe first offenses of DV are too light and it would only take that one time for one's life to end.

  20. I don't think people realize how quickly domestic violence can sneak up on you. I too am a survivor of domestic violence. The relationship that I was involved with was when I was in my early 20s and it was with my first love. I had no idea how I got to where I was or what to do about it. I was in such a bad place and didn't know where to turn. The topic of domestic violence had never came up in my life before that. I wish that someone somewhere along the line had educated me on what it as was and where to find help should you ever find yourself in that situation. Now that I am married and in my 50s I realize that the topic should be brought up to young people in school before it happens to them or a loved one. Recognizing the signs and even admitting that you need help can be a big step. You are so right, this topic needs a voice and without the discussions it won't happen. i'm glad you wrote this book and I would love to read it and pass it on to others in hopes that help someone along the way.
