They didn’t even know it was my birthday…

I woke up to the BEST update, y’all.


LW 764 is safely out of their relationship & situation. I won’t include their whole message since it has some potentially identifying details, but I wanted to share this part with the community:

“…the discussions on the Friends of Captain Awkward forums and a lengthy discussion with the National Domestic Violence hotline (not to mention the unwavering support of friends and family who saw Partner’s abuse years before I did) really have helped me make this huge step. My physical health is already MUCH better, despite living out of a suitcase for the time being. I’m incredibly sad, sometimes rageful, but mostly relieved and excited to start the next chapter of my life, living alone. Thank you.”

I know I’m not the only person who has been thinking about you these past few months. May your new life be amazing.
