I am a survivor~~~I did not have access to the resources when I was fighting with domestic violence and still I made it this far and want to let people know that no matter whether you are a man, women or child abuse is NOT okay. It is difficult to come forward and even more difficult to stay on track that will lead to freedom. I was molested as a child and raped as a teenager and I have been through physical, mental and emotional abuse and am a survivor. So it is possible and with the help that is available today there is even more reason not to deal with it anymore. This is not the first time I have told this story but this is not the whole story, but the fact remains that I did not let these people have control of my mind or my heart. Now, I understand that not everyone is not the same. But the achievement can be made. please remember that.
