Introduction

Just giving myself permission to use my voice to stand up and speak out about the domestic violence and abuse I endured for 11 years is a huge step. I am not helping anyone else with the things I have learned and gone through if I just sit by and pretend nothing happened.

I am here, starting this blog, to be real and speak candidly about domestic violence and abuse. I will share my story. I will share the effects it has had on me and the children.

My prayer is that something I write about will help someone else out there in a situation like I was in.

Hi, I am writing to thank you for sharing so much and so real.
I found this first post, and I guess you really did.
Thank you.
