If you are experiencing emotional, physical or financial abuse, reach out. These are difficult times, to say the least. Tempers are easy to flare, and fuses are short. It is important to find healthy releases for our strife – exercise, walks, movies, meditation, etc.
But if you find yourself in a situation that is inescapably dangerous, you are the only one who can help yourself out of it. I have walked the walk. People would not guess that about me. I hid it well, and after all, I’m too smart and too “together” to have had abuse in my life. Yes, that is a bit of sarcasm. Yet, I did experience abuse, and I have turned so many corners since then.
Abuse touches all genders, all ages, all types, and comes in many forms. The curse and the blessing of going through something like that is that you start to appreciate the little things, like small kindnesses and genuine hearts. So my firm and I understand. We know that people wear masks and fool the world, all the while being someone or something else behind closed doors.
Our doors are open to those who need help finding a way out of violent or abusive situations. Please realize you deserve better, and better does exist. Just reach!
