I’ve taken a whole lot of negativity and turned it into a positive! Don’t let your negative experiences with abuse and violence bring you down. You are not what happened to you, you are so much more, much more than what you realize.
When you are put down and called names repeat, systemically, you begin to believe it. It wears on you. You know nothing of the happiness and love you richly deserve. They tell you you’re worthless, stupid, they insult you by calling you trash, or a bitch, whore, dumb ass. They belittle you with the names. And you believe it.
Stop believing it. They call you names to keep you bound to them. They want unhealthy power and control. It’s you start to believe in yourself they lose that power. TAKE BACK YPUR CONTROL. The best weapon in the defense against domestic violence is your mind. Fear is the tool of an aggressor. When you’re scared, you’re scared to tell someone about the abuse. You’re also scared to fight back. Well I’m hear to tell you YOU GOT THIS. You are much stronger than you think. Even an ounce, a tiny amount courage goes a long way. Stand up and fight for yourself. There is help!!
You and your children can receive financial assistance. You and your children can receive all new identities. New names, birth certificates, social security numbers. You and your family can be relocated anywhere in the United States. you can receive legal aid services for injunctions and divorce. There’s so much available but you must ask! Make the call to 911 or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233. They can save your life.
Start a new chapter in your life, a life without fear and full of love. And always remember…..
“There is nothing impossible to him who will try.”-Alexander the Great
