Meet Angeliqueraoul!

We caught up with new member AngeliqueRaoul and asked a few fun questions. Get to know your new community member and don't forget to say Hello!

EP: Good morning and welcome. Wonderful to have you join us. Let's get started right away. What is the best advice you have ever received? Who gave it to you?

AngeliqueRaoul: Pleasure to be here. Great question. To get marriage counselling with a Christian counsellor. He was the first counsellor who was strong enough to not let my husband get away with anything. Before the counselling I saw my husband as an inhuman monster who was out to terrorise and destroy me. I took in a lodger (a dear friend who left in terror of him) to avoid being alone with him. Thanks to the counselling he began to change but I still lived in terror of his rages until the counsellor eventually told me I needed to lose my terror. I did and it has never come back since and when he gets angry I can stand up to him and he doesn't threaten me much now. I now see him as a damaged person and need support to tell him he is damaging me and if he doesn't want to get help to change then I need to find a place where I can feel safe to express my emotions away from him.

EP: Intriguing answer. What activity have you always wanted to try, but haven't yet? Why?

AngeliqueRaoul: A bit random, but OK. I've always wanted to be a counsellor and done the training but I don't have the self confidence due to my mum's and husband's put downs all my life and my resulting low self esteem.

EP: Wow. If you could meet any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?

AngeliqueRaoul: Let me think about that one for a second. I've heard about people who have had Jesus appear to them and they have felt bathed in love so I'd love that to happen to me.

EP: Ah, of course. It's quite a unique way you have of looking at things. Well, that concludes our up close and personal interview with AngeliqueRaoul . Stay tuned readers, for our next New Member Interview.
