One in four women suffer some form of Domestic Violence. Look at your loved ones. If it is you, tell someone. Nearly every town has a Domestic Violence Hot line. Love doesn't hurt. Love doesn't make you cry.
I was able to escape a 9 year violent relationship and marriage, solely to protect oldest daughter when she was 2 years old. I didn't realize I was worth saving too. For me,coming to terms with physical violence was faster than getting past the verbal abuse. It's all possible with support.
Don't give up on your mother, daughter, sister, friend. Everyone has their own limit. Some never find the inner strength. They need you even more.
