Let’s have an understanding.
Unstoppable Me™ believes abuse is inexcusable… that healing is possible… and we can become unstoppable in our lives despite previous experiences or choices.
We are mission-driven and our heart is to help as many targets of intimate partner abuse heal so that they can be the unstoppable versions of themselves they aspire to be.
To prevent any misunderstanding about our beliefs and our mission, please review the following. Thank you in advance for being respectful in our community.
Abuse doesn’t discriminate.
Abuse is an ugly reality that doesn’t discriminate against age, color, race, gender, sexual orientation, education, family background, health conditions or economic standing.
For ease of content-creation and content-digestion for our audience, we have chosen to use the words “she” and “her” when describing targets of abuse and share scenarios based on heterosexual intimate relationships within our blog posts, videos, podcasts, social media accounts, and all other media outlets.
Please rest assured we do not believe abuse is only a social issue targeting women. Nor do we believe intimate partner abuse only occurs within male-female relationships. Again, abuse doesn’t discriminate and we understand abuse can affect anyone.
Targets of abuse
We have also chosen to use the word “target” versus “victim” when describing people who have experienced abuse. In so many ways, people that experience intimate partner abuse are truly targets. The word target is more empowering than victim.

Intimate partner abuse
When it comes to intimate partner abuse, there is a fundamental perspective to understand. Whether you’ve experienced physical abuse, sexual abuse, economic abuse, property violence, or any other form of abuse by an intimate partner – you first experienced psychological abuse. All other forms of abuse are preceded by mental and emotional abuse.
Our heads and our hearts were enmeshed first. This is why Unstoppable Me is focusing on helping targets of abuse heal psychologically.

Abuse not allowed
We will not tolerate negative, threatening or rude comments directed at us or fellow followers of our mission. Further, if your intention for participating in our community is to harass, threaten or spy on the founder, our team, or fellow followers of our mission, your comments will be removed immediately and appropriate action will be taken.
Thank you in advance for respecting the standards of our online presence.
Are you currently in an abusive relationship?
All forms of abuse are inexcusable. Period. Perpetrators must own their actions; we cannot. Making choices to protect our head, heart, and physical safety is our responsibility.
Unstoppable Me™ is intended for people that have already exited an abusive relationship and are prepared to embrace the healing process. We are sharing insights; we wish somebody would have shared with us.
If you are currently in an abusive relationship, please reach out for help. Advocates are available 24/7 at The National Domestic Violence Hotline, 800-799-SAFE.
Getting out only happens when we’re ready to make that choice. It rarely matters what someone else says or does. We each have our own process and I respect yours. And even though I don’t know you, I care for you—your head and your heart. I wish you bucket loads of courage and discernment. Keep safe.
