Peacemaking has always been an important part of my life! However, in terms of my inspiration for Down with the Dursleys specifically, I have personally dealt with psychological abuse and emotional neglect. When struggling with the abuse, victims often have no physical wounds to show for it. These lack of wounds imply a lack of pain. Yet, there is pain--pain that can be a catalyst for catastrophic results. It is for this reason that I wished to start Down with the Dursleys.
Hi Journey, it is so inspiring to hear that you've turned your personal struggle and pain into compassion for others with the same experiences. Thanks for sharing your experiences. Yours is a powerful story and we're glad you're here!
