Kenyan television celebrity Lilian Muli has revealed that she had been in abusive relationships before and has since learned how to avoid them.
The Citizen TV news anchor admitted that she had fallen victim to emotional and mental abuse at least twice in the past. The sassy news reader has had a colourful dating life with publicised wedding, marriage, divorce and later openly dated a married man.
In an interactive session on Instagram, she said that she has learnt her lesson and she’s now wiser.
“It is sad to see so many people in pain. I have seen all your messages and for those who have lived through that and overcome I am so happy for you.
“…After going through the same at least twice in my life I realized I was attracting the same character in my relationships because I was attracted to a certain type. You must put an end to attracting a certain type. Take time to heal and then really take time before you open up to someone else,” said Muli.
In another post, the media personality advised those who have fallen victim to abusive relationships not to share their vulnerabilities with a new partner unless they trust them fully.
“Do not share too many intimate details about what went wrong previously in your life in terms of abuse unless you are 100 percent sure about the person you are opening up to. Chances are they might use your vulnerabilities against you and really do you wrong based on what they know about your greatest fears,” she posted.
Lilian Muli added: “Take care of your heart and mind. Don’t take things to heart when people hurt you even if it’s family.”
