Diario de duelo

In September 2014, my then-partner and I moved in together. In January 2015, I left the apartment. One month later, we separated, although we continued to see each other for the next five years. Not understanding what I was going through, the silence of those around me, and the consequent inability to seek help led me to repeat patterns of relationships with little or no empathy and pronounced power differences that nearly destroyed me later on.

Now I call what I didn't know how to name before "abuse", and I consider it a natural way of relating between men and women. It's a social failure that leaves millions of wounds each year and kills no less people.

Diario de duelo was the processing of the trauma of that relationship in which I was alone.
