Amber left her boyfriend a couple of days after posting on Reddit. Though in-depth, thoughtful comments helped her reach her decision, she was also spurred to action by simple, straightforward responses. “One of them was like, ‘You have legs, now run woman!’ or something like that, and at that point, I felt a lot of relief,” Amber explains. She had posted on Reddit because she was between therapy sessions when the incident occurred. When she did see her therapist again, she actually read some of the comments she received aloud. While it’s “not the same” as having a therapist, Amber argues that relationship forums “can be a good resource” for those experiencing difficulties.
