The original author of this post really expresses thoughts and feelings shared by many survivors of that evil imbalance and abuse of power from a significant other. As Dr. Maya Angelou so eloquently wrote, “And Still I Rise”! Every person, man or woman, must believe that they, too, can survive and rise out from the darkness of another. Then, true value and self-worth can become more clear. Whether emotional, physical, financial, psychological, sexual….be a survivor, and know when to say ‘when’. Step into the light and let fear be the greatest motivator to seek higher, safe ground!
