Kristina Ruth is a successful business owner and now Author based Queensland's Sunshine Coast. She has wanted to write this book for a long time but had to overcome her own self doubt and negative self talk to actually put pen to paper. Her book The Self-Preservation Guide -How to leave a toxic relationship and change your life.
The statistics in Australia are shocking more than 1 women is killed by her partner or former partner EVERY week in domestic violence related incidents. Kiristina had a close friend suffer for years from a domestic violent situation. She wrote this book to empower, support and inspire people to change their lives. May is Domestic and Family Violence Prevention Month in QLD.
We have all been horrified by what we just keep seeing on the news , Hannah Clarke and her three beautiful children murdered last year and now Kelly Wilkinson murdered in a similar way leaving three children without their beautiful Mum. Both these women did everything they could to protect themselves and their children. The protection laws have to change.
I dedicate this episode to everyone that has been a victim of Domestic Violence and Abuse.
