I dont know what to think about the DV stuff to be honest and i feel bad for feeling so conflicted but she was 16 and i dont know if its odd that she's still clinging onto that now? She needs to speak to a professional if its still affecting her this much.Wow. Came here to say the same thing. I do feel for her. How can she not see it? This incessant need to share every single little (and very private at times) detail with hundreds of thousands of strangers is so worrying and disturbing. Call your therapist, Alice. Call and hug a friend and/or a loved one. Hold Paddy tighter at night. The internet isn't it!
I must say I do appreciate her giving a voice/face to DV and relevant charities.
I agree - it’s nearly 20 years since I was in a toxic, emotionally abusive relationship that I now recognise had so many signs of coercive control but that I thought was just “passionate” etc etc. When clearing out some old papers recently I found a diary of some of the early days of it and it really got to me, despite now being very happily settled with an awesome person. Those old feelings came tumbling into my psyche so easily and it’s hard!! So I can see how she can feel upset - but not sure pouring it all out on Instagram when it’s so raw was the best thing for her.I found her stories really upsetting to watch having been in unhealthy relationships previously myself. Whilst I am not her biggest fan, I hope she does continue to raise awareness of domestic violence and the help available.
I was always really encouraged by her support of Women’s Aid and DV and feel she could actually be a valuable voice but them but she’s now subsumed by all her other stuff. So the real good she could do and the voice she could act as gets lost in the humble bragging.
I can’t believe she poured all that out on stories on Instagram. Why?? I don’t get it. Just appreciate the show and the emotions and share those feelings with people who care. It’s such a weird oversharing.
I believe he was playing Tory Golf. Lewis only ever appears when Paddy is busy!!!Do you think Paddy wasn’t home again and that’s why she shared on insta? Seems a bit odd to be that upset and filming herself. If he was home surely he’d go and comfort her and then she could post a bit later with the valuable message she was trying to share. She just seems to be alone a lot!
