I was a domestic violence survivor and volunteer. There are only 2 things you need
to have on your mind right now, your children and finishing school.
He will get worse once you graduate/get licensed. YOU will have to be the one to
make things happen. It's not fair that you may have to move and disrupt your life.
But you have to do it for your peace and sanity. If you cannot go to a shelter yet,
please call a domestic violence hotline for preliminary guidance.
:igtsyt:Start 'cutting the cords' with him emotionally. If you do not do this, your escape
will be in vain and you will go back, again and again. He will be nice when he thinks
he is losing his grip on you. Do not worry about where he is or what he is doing
when he isn't with you. He is not your concern. It will be painful, you will be heartbroken.
You will cry more than you ever thought possible, but you still have to keep going.
If it is too hard for you to bear doing anything right now,
imagine how it will be a year from now if you flunk out;hopelessly trapped.
Every day you stay he is chipping away at you, at your soul. DON'T give him the satisfaction!
You are not alone. Many women have had to travel this path. It is scary, but once your
life is your own again, you will wonder how you ever let ANYONE treat you like this in the
first place. Things will not get better overnight, but life has a way of making things happen
for you when you show you are really serious. Stay strong! You can do this!
Your children are counting on you! The part of you that knows you deserve better
is crying out to you. Please listen to it.
