Abstract: In this performative autoethnography, I analyze the traumatic experience of the ending and aftermath of an abusive relationship. The past, present, and future come together for an examination of how abuse affects the entirety of a person’s life. Use of visual imagery, personal journaling, and temporal alterations take a critical look at relationship abuse generally and specifically. I embody the universal singular by exposing my breaking point, emotional suffering, and self-rebuilding. As a critical autoethnographer, I engage with this project to examine the life-long effects of abusive relationships. Linger effects include, not only as the traumatic event itself, but also the trauma of healing and the associated negative shame. Through this process of writing and performance, I transform the personal into the political.
