WARNING: Listeners please be advised, this episode contains disturbing topics including abuse and domestic violence and may require discretion.

Kia Lee is a personification of resilience. A newly minted author and survivor, she opens up about the turbulence that spurred her desire for relationships and the impact of growing up with an absent father. She conveys a sincere yearn to provide for her family, driven by the challenges her single mother and sisters faced, and her dreams of success and stability that once seemed like a distant fantasy.

In this episode, we delve into Kia’s past relationships, her struggle for balance and individuality within them, and the quiet alarms that went unheeded. We traverse the terrain of her relationship peaks and valleys, from hopeful dates to the subtlety of red flags missed under the distraction of navigating through the pandemic.

Most harrowingly, Kia shares her devastating experience with domestic violence, describing the insidious escalation from manipulative comments to traumatic bonds and physical harm. She bravely recounts a nightmarish evening that shattered her sense of security, the complex emotions of seeking help, and ultimately, her resolve to survive and thrive beyond the abuse.

We follow Kia's path to healing and advocacy, learning how she channeled her pain into purpose with her book "Lighthouse" and her dedication to aiding those who face similar dark waters. Through our candid conversation, Kia sheds light on the often hidden struggles of dating, self-worth, and the courage it takes to rebuild after one's world has been turned upside down.

Join us on this unflinching, yet hopeful, exploration of resilience, as we navigate the complexities of love, family, and the quest for a life free from fear.
