Dear Friends and Family,
I post this as I believe we need to be aware. If we do not know, then we can not help or change or have choice. Become aware and take a stand. If you or anyone you know is in an abusive relationship please share this! You are not alone. I’m here to help. I know what it feels like and I’m grateful I had friends and family who loved me enough to speak their truth to me and offered me support. In the end, I had to choose me and I did.
When I went to the doctor I found this poster on the wall. It stirred something within and I read the poster over and over again. I realized that even if one of these things was true and I accepted or justified the behavior I was making emotional abuse acceptable. It sickened me. I share this today, months after first reading it because I can no longer be silent.
CHOOSE YOU or help someone to choose themselves!
Together we are stronger.
Together we can become the change we wish to experience.
Together we can heal!
Heart to heart,
