I will never go back to that old life and situation again.
I choose how my life goes. I am responsible for me, and my children. We are safe. We are loved. We are free. I will do whatever I have to for those things to remain - safety, love and freedom.
It's hard to believe it's been a year. I am such a different girl than I was 365 days ago. My kids are different, too.
Are things still messy? You bet. Are we stronger because of it? Most definitely.
Thank God we are out... Not every woman and child makes it out.
If you are being abused, get support and get help. You deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. YOU ARE WORTH IT.
