Fighting For A Voice

Finding My Voice

Michelle Erhard** NEVER put yourself in danger, if you are still in an abusive relationship, seek help. You can find local Victim Agencies to assist you with SAFELY leaving the abusive situation that you are in. Please remember, it is not your fault and you are not alone.

Sometimes you feel as though you are stuck – you can’t do things that you can’t move forward in your life because of memories, symptoms, thoughts, feelings and life events that are part of the result of the abuse you sustained.

Today, I accept the abuse as part of my life. The work I have had to do and continue to do to get over the effects of this abuse has made me stronger. Now I am in charge of my life; not my abuser, allowing myself to be the person that I WANT to be.

These poems remind me of who I am today and where I have been:

Another Woman - 50kb
