I was a victim of domestic violence.
I took the plunge and ran, more than a year ago.
It was the hardest thing to do, but it couldn’t be any worse than the controlling, abusive behaviour my kids had to witness.
Like me, a lot of woman or men do not speak out, but there does come a time when enough is enough.
It is tough emotionally and financially for a while, but with the help of agencies who are there to help you, you will get better at finding a new, happy life for yourself and your children.
Staff at the Centre for Domestic Violence are a great bunch of ladies who go above and beyond to help you.
And I for one am forever grateful for them.
