“Got married at the age of 15 did not know any better about domestic violence at that time because that was all around us. As I got older and understand better I know the difference. My husband was very abusive and would always make me feel like nothing. One of the bright sides of life this better for me. Life is good. Make it good for you.”
“ I have been molested as a child, raped by an intimate partner and experienced domestic violence. Pottery even broken can be repurposed to be something beautiful and valuable. Don’t let your experience devalue you. You are worth even more now than you ever did before.”
“July 2014 I got the courage to walk away from an abusive relationship. I got punched, spit in the face, verbal abuse as well. You name it, I got it, he kept making promises that he wouldn’t do it again, but that didn’t happen. I stayed because of my kids but it got over bearing so I took my kids and left. My daughter begged me to leave as well so I did.”
“Physical, mental, emotional and financial abuse from my child’s father and also my mother. I ask God to give me the strength to forgive.”
