I am not the only one.
That simple sentence means the world to a victim of domestic violence. It did me. DV is still kept behind closed doors. Realizing we are each not the only one gives us strength to talk about our experiences. Your stories are welcome here.
Sometimes I am so very thankful that I am not the only one. Sometimes I wish I were. The pain is ridiculous. I hate that there are so many of us suffering the effects of intimate partner abuse. No one should have to.
I am not alone. You are not alone. We are here together.
