FIVE POINT FIVE YEARS ago I added another distinction to my title... Survivor.

As incredibly difficult as it was to live in domestic violence for 11 years, those years helped shape me in to the person I am today. Because I was beat up, I now deeply understand the healing of a loving touch. Because I was told I am worthless, I now consistently strive to find my value in the person God tells me I am. Because I was constantly manipulated, I now choose to be straight-forward and honest. Because I was told I would never be anything, I chose to prove to myself I could, and I now have a career and job I love. 

"Even though you intended to harm me, God intended it only for good..." Genesis 50:20.

And, the good continues.

Several helpline numbers have been repeatedly posted by the government to help the one in need. Even they are working with NGO in Delhi, Mumbai or other major cities to reach more and more victims in remote areas.
