Hi everyone, thank you in advance for your help! I'm currently working on pre-writing secondaries, and I wanted to run what I am planning to talk about for my adversity/challenge answer to see if it would raise any red flags. Specifically, I was in a physically, emotionally abusive relationship for several years - which led to me finally having the courage to get out and seek a restraining order. It was one of the most difficult things I have ever had to do, and I grew stronger, more resilient for it. I want to talk about it on my application and have admission committees know this part of my life - but I have been told by many people, including my therapist, that it is not something I should disclose because society still negatively views women who have gone through domestic violence (by thinking - what did she do to lead to this?) Do you think this would be an okay topic to discuss or should I not do so because it could lead to red flags?
