  • You can do it. It sounds like me a million years ago. I had two children. I got a job at Halle's, but it did not meet all of the bills, so I went back to college. My mother helped, as well as a good friend. I went to school for 2-1/2 years. I made it. It was hard. I was on Welfare for those years, but have not been since. It was very hard because, Welfare took it to fact the money you used for books, so they downed everything. My mom was on Disability Social Security for having Myasthenia Gravis. She could budget like no one. If I could do it, anyone can do it. I was in an abusive relationship, too. I was not used to taking care of myself, either.

  • Yes you can do it because you want to be around to raise your kids. You are worth much more then a man who has nothing to offer but his fist. You can do because you love your kids and want to be there for them.
    You can do it. Just have faith in GOD and in yourself and trust me you can do it.

  • Of course you can do it!!!! I am proud of you for making the decision to leave, the fact that you chose to leave him, knowing you don't need the abuse PROVES that you are a strong woman. I know you can do this. GOOD LUCK SWEETIE!!!

  • You CAN do it!! It's really hard, but the hardest part is the beginning. The initial shock of doing it on your own. After that, it gets easier. Or it did for me, anyway! Just think how wonderful it will be to come home to a house where you can be comfortable and not worry about being abused. because you will be happier, and your kids will be happier, too. Good luck!

    bow down

  • Yes you can do it b/c you can do anything when you have your mind set. It will be tough and there will be times when you may be discouraged but keep in mind that the ends justify the means and in the end you will have happiness and peace. Good luck on your journey:)

  • Of course you can. I did. I didnt even have my GED when I left and now I am a college grad. Its hard to do but if you have made a choice to say no more then thats great. Kids deserve a loving home free of abuse so the cycle of abuse can stop. Good for you.
