Inspiring Conversations with Julia Wong of HeartsWithJules

Today we’d like to introduce you to Julia Wong.

Hi Julia, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Although I suffered emotional abuse for so many years, I never knew what I was experiencing was abuse and torture. Sometimes I wanted to give up on life because of the pain I was experiencing. As a victim of abuse, I couldn’t figure out how to get help. I needed help, but I was afraid that people would think I was stupid or an attention seeker because that is what my abuser told me. My life probably would have ended if I had stayed longer, so I decided to move away. That alone took me four and a half years. I’m so glad I made that decision! After settling in, I went out for dinner with a friend, I told her some of my stories, and she said, “that’s a narcissist; you’re describing a narcissist” I had no idea what that was or what she was talking about. The same evening, I signed up for Tiktok and discovered Lee Hammock (MentalHealness) on my ForYourPage. I was shocked. It seemed as though he described my life. I began watching his videos and researching more, and that’s how my healing journey started.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been smooth?
It was a bumpy road to move on and heal from abuse because my abuser never left me alone. My abuser always contacted me through emails, fake emails, fake social accounts, private phone calls, and texts from random numbers. Getting messages saying how badly they missed you, how they will change, and how much they love you can be tough when you are vulnerable. You forget that they have been saying this for more than 4 years. Even when this person said things I didn’t like to get under my skin, I had to talk myself out. I had to find the strength to keep blocking my abuser; it was not a smooth road.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
