In a conversation that's going viral on Imgur, a young Australian woman posted on the anonymous messaging app Whisper, asking if anyone wanted to get together and have sex, to help her get over her ex. Amid all the dudes trying to take advantage, one person decided instead to give her a much-needed pep talk, and personal advice on how to deal with pain and abuse. Their conversation was uploaded with the title "How To Free Yourself From Abuse." While this advice may not work for everyone, it's definitely made an impression on the people who've read it.
