We had the good fortune of connecting with Julia Wong (who goes by Jules) and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jules, what makes you happy? Why?
My family is what makes me truly happy, and some of my close friends are also like family to me. Oh, and food is a must haha. I have been through so much in my life that no matter what happened, the same people were always by my side. You know how they say, it is during the worst times of your life that you will get to see the true colours of people who say they care for you. In all honesty, I am grateful for what I have and am truly happy with what I have.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Despite being able to pull myself out of the abuse, I remember I was sent to the hospital a few times due to panic/stress. I want to thank Karen (Mookie) for being there for me when I needed her the most. I want to thank you for taking me to the hospital and staying there with me just to ensure I was okay. I’m so grateful you helped me through some of my most difficult times. I will never forget everything you did for me.
I would also like to thank Sabah and Qadra, my best friends whom I consider family.
You both have always given me the best advice and looked out for me. If I continue to thank you both, it would never end, but I’m sure you can tell by my actions how much I love you both.
My final shout-out goes to Tiktok, without it I would not have discovered that the abuse I was subjected to had a name. I then signed up and began sharing my story. I was shocked to see how many people were suffering from narcissistic abuse or in a toxic relationship. Through Tiktok, Instagram, Youtube and Facebook, I have used my pain and personal experiences to spread awareness. In the social media community, I have become a part of a group called The NarcAvengers, which I call home on the healing side, validating victims, to help break the traumabond and more. I am blessed to be a part of this community, to be able to help those in need, and I hope to continue doing so!
