This week it is my 7th year in Second Life and my RL birthday as well. OMG!
Though normally you get presents when it is your birthday, but I am taking this chance to thank you all for your loyalty of being a member of Sascha's Designs, which I can only repay by giving YOU a present.
You can get this gown in the Reception Area. In order to get this gown for free, please wear your Sascha's Designs tag.
I am speaking from personal experience as I have been in a domestic violent relationship for 10 years. From a normal happy young Twenty-something, I had changed into a mousy Thirty-something with no social life in 10 years. Now I am a happy Forty-something and am so glad I had the guts to step out of that relationship.
(if you look closely at the 2000 picture, you can see the bruise on my cheek)
Please do not let any man (or woman) hit you, kick you or make you feel like shit. Leave the fucker asap and do not be embarrassed to ask for help! If he hits you more than twice, he will continue and will never stop. Please, please leave him (or her)! If I had had the guts to speak up and ask for help asap, I would have never been in such a bad situation.
Find the courage for yourself to be no longer treated like shit! If I could find the courage to leave my abusive spouse, so can you! :-)
