Day 12: A Story of Courage
“I had a nice house, we both had high-paying jobs, had a ‘perfect life’ on the outside so I stayed for a long time with the abuse occurring, mostly because of the kids. He still bothers me because I have to deal with him because of the kids. But I know he can't hurt me in any way anymore. Sometimes I feel guilty that I left because I don't have an intact family but I know I did what I could to try to save it. I never wanted to be divorced but I'm proud that with the help of others I was finally able to make the final break. It was like I was making an escape.” ~ Domestic violence survivor
