I am a survivor of domestic violence. It may not seem like much but a lot of people don’t understand the heartbreak that comes from being hurt physically and mentally from the person you love so dearly. I tried for so long to make the relationship work because I loved him so much. After 6 years I had enough so finally left and myself and my kids have never been happier. Friends and family ask me if I wish I’d left earlier, but you know what no I don’t, because I wouldn’t have my amazing children nor would I be the person I am today. I am strong, I don’t get hurt easily (mentally) and as I have had to deal with a lot worse then any problems that arise now. I am glad I did leave when I did and that when my children are all grown up they will know that I left and that they neither have to put up with any kind of abuse from a person who is meant to love you. Anybody out there who is in a violent or controlling relationship, it is no good for you or your children (if you have then) I know from experiance that you will not leave until you decide you have had enough no matter what anyone else says, and I know it is very hard to try and disconnect that love so you can move onto to a happier life, but I can gaureentee you that you can do it, and you will be happier and so will your children.
