My name is Renee and I left 25 years of abuse, I moved on and I’m not looking back. I left everything and walked out with the clothes on my back. He would tell me your not going no where, who will will want you, your worthless no one cares, so I should just kill myself. No one would even notice. I’ve been in a new place for going on a month, it’s pretty hard, but I’m doing it. I managed to get my house furnished and keep all bills paid. I’m looking begging asking for help on transportation. I don’t have a car and can’t afford to buy one. I’m not a well woman and walking in this desert is horrible, summers around the block and it will be extremely hot. If anybody knows and can feel my pain to begin to know what it feels like to be spit punched kicked dragged tortured, can open their heart to me and help me. I can sit down with you and let you really feel and understand what I’ve encountered through my life. Domestic abuse is no joke m, why we stay in this horrible place, is because we don’t know our self worth, until we find it or just had enough is when we set our self free. All this time I knew God had me, and he helped me find me. I went from having it all to having nothing that fast, but was it worth it…NO NEVER… I promise myself to always remember where I came from and never look back go back. When I feel life is too much, I look around me and see how much I accomplished, their I am fulfilled in my heat and helps, makes me push harder to achieve what is needed. I put this man in prison and he will be there for the rest of his life, the trail Alone was the worst. But I got through it. A year of going back and forth to court. Fighting for my right as a human being who’s been tortured and abused really paid off.. I don’t have to hide anymore thinking he’s gonna break into my house, waking up and he’s on topof me. I will never have to experience that ever again in life. I get therapy to help me get this hurt out of me, but I still wake up terrified screaming, but I know it’s not real. Soon one day I will feel whole again and learn to trust people and not be afraid of what life has to offer me, but until that day comes I stay focused and ready for life to bless me with opportunity. Thank you for listening to my story.
