I finally left!!!!

For those of you who know my battle I've been going through with my abusive baby's father, I just wanted to tell you I officially left last night... I'm staying with a friend until I can afford my own place.... I'm so proud, but so scared....

  • My thoughts and prayers are with you. Stay tough and don't go back now! You did the hardest part. You are a strong woman and are protecting your baby. You are a good mama!! If you need help, go to human services and they can help you get on your feet, so can the salvation army. Then you can contact your local law enforcement to get in touch with a safe house or women's advocate if you need go somewhere to sort things out and be safe. Good luck hun!

  • This is a very hard thing for a woman to do I have been in two abusive relationships in the past and with both men had a kid. I have learned that once u leave u need to stay gone or you fall right back into the mess you left behind.
    Many times a women will start thinking about the good time they had with the man and want to go back as I did at one point in time but then you have to stop yourself and remember all the bad times too so you will understand why it is that you left the person. I wish you luck and hope that you do well on your own it is very hard to escape sometimes, and remember from my own experience you don’t deserve to be treated bad by anyone.
