A sense of peace has hit me from time to time. I've often pondered just letting this blog go. I'm healing, physically, mentally and emotionally. Yet, I look at my stats, not for big headedness, but to realize that so many people in this world need to know they are not alone.
I don't consider myself any of the kind things that I have been told from so many blog readers. I feel I am just a woman, wife, daughter, sister, and mom. Nothing extraordinary. My guts tell me otherwise. They scream to me not to let go, to dredge up experiences and knowledge in order to spread the word about Abuse.
To let other know they can escape. They can have normalcy! They can love again or find themselves.
Baby steps. It takes time. Time does heal all wounds. Prayer and my faith in the Lord have been great for me. During this journey I have met some really wonderful people that have shared, inspired and comforted me.
Dear Blog reader, you are an amazing person! Remember that! I was once in your shoes. Is the danger out of my life? Not entirely. But I have peace that I am no longer where I was. I am no longer who I was.
If you are in a abusive situation there is HOPE! Please do not waiver in believing such.
Reach out to a friend, police officer, clergy person or call a shelter or hotline to get help. You can survive a broken relationship. Whether you partner, family member or child is abusing you, please know there is help. You have to have FAITH and leap. Do you really want to spend the rest of your life this way?
