Back to the roots

 

Hildburg is my given name and means fight and protection.

After we moved from a tiny farm village to a small town, kids started to call me Hilde because it was simpler for them to pronounce.
I started to lose connection to my name.

Using Hildburg as name for my business made a lot of sense. It feels like it has found its rightful purpose finally.

About me

A highly educated intelligent woman won’t ever find herself in an abusive relationship, right?

Whenever I saw these movies or video clips of women who were together with a man wo treated them like trash, I didn’t believe that this could ever happen to me. And yet it did. And not only once even several times.I felt like my life had turned into a dramatic thriller just I didn’t have Shawn Mendes next to me in a motel room singing he would ‘Treat me better’.

How does a highly educated intelligent woman treat such experiences? She makes it her life’s mission to help other women out of abusive relationships in their lives & prevent from ending up in any again.

THE 1ST TIME I WAS ASSAULTED I WAS 18. THE 1ST TIME I WAS RAPED I WAS 22. THE 2ND TIME I WAS RAPED I WAS 25. THE 5TH TIME I WAS RAPED I WAS 39. AT 40, I DECIDED ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

In between, several sexual assaults and a domestic violent relationship happened. I reported incidents to the police only 4 times. I never pressed charges & I never went to court to demand justice. I never spoke up.

Many times I didn’t even become aware that what had happened to me were crimes. I had been seriously depressed due to never opening up to my therapists or psychiatrists about the incidents. Many of my rapes & sexual assaults happened with men I knew, men I trusted, men I thought to be kind. I mostly swallowed my pain, kept silent, felt too ashamed & blamed myself for allowing these men into my life in the first place.

My Vision 2028

 

For my 50th birthday, I plan to own my first horse coaching ranch, a safe place where women can rebuild their trust & self-confidence with the support of horses and a team of other coaches & therapists.
