As someone who is a survivor of physical, emotional, psychological abuse, and having my life threatened, I've decided to take my victory lap because of how proud of myself I am for leaving and saving my life. I want to share my experience and encourage those in abusive relationships that they can and are strong enough to leave. I want to be a voice for those who don't realize they have the strength to speak up and say no. I took a very negative and extremely hard part of my life and turned it into a positive learning experience and want others to see they can have a happy ending too. I did what I thought was impossible and I'll never regret my decision. I want others to not just save their lives but to be happy again and live the life they want to live. You only get one life to live and I wanted mine and I want others to live a happy one.
