I am a Lot Stronger Than I Thought Possible

Dec 17, 2011

“I learned so much here. I learned to stop blaming myself for his actions. I learned I am a lot stronger than I thought possible. I learned that it’s OK for me to just leave when a situation is making me feel unsafe. I have to deal with my ex because of our daughter. I know now not to try and talk to him while he is angry. I don’t deserve to be talked to the way he talks to me when he is angry. I don’t remember the last time I didn’t feel nervous to come home. Now that I know how much better it feels to have home be a safe place to come home to, I will never let myself live another way. Home will always be my safe place and now I understand that I deserve that.” (Mother, age 26)
