BENEFITING: NEXT DOOR SOLUTIONS TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Let's band together and put an end to Domestic Violence!!
Domestic violence has no boundaries, it has no respect, it has NO LOVE! Many people are a victim of domestic violence. I was a victim, not once but twice, but now I am a survivor.
Domestic violence is not racist, it does not have gender bias, it doesn't care how little or much money you make or how little or much education you have. I have two bachelors degrees and a masters degree. I am a nurse and I always took care of others but I never took care of myself. I was educated on the cycle of violence and I still allowed it to happen to me. It is everywhere and can happen to anyone!!
It is a silent disease that eats away at your mind, body and soul. It makes you feel worthless and hopeless. Domestic violence is not only physical abuse. It includes verbal abuse and emotional abuse. Name calling, threatening behavior and emotional abandonment are all forms of domestic violence. Don't let it happen to you and if it is happening to you don't let it continue!
YOU ARE WORTH IT AND YOU DESERVE MORE!! THERE IS HOPE AND YOU CAN HAVE PEACE AND HAPPINESS IN YOUR LIFE!! YOU CAN GET OUT!!
I am a domestic violence survivor!! You can get out too. You can do it! You too can be a survivor. You just have to convince yourself that YOU ARE WORTH IT and that YOU DESERVE MORE!! You can regain your life and be the beautiful, amazing person that you are!!
YOU DESERVE TO BE CHERISHED BY SOMEONE JUST THE WAY YOU ARE, BECAUSE YOU ARE YOU!!
Please help me to provide resources and support for those who are currently in or have been in a domestic violence relationship.
No one deserves to suffer!!
