I have been there. I was raped and beaten by my dad and a few ex boyfriends I dated. I recently got out of a bad relationship where the man threw things and punched walls. He waved a knife in my face. This has been my struggle through out my life and I have had enough. My revolution is to leave it behind and set out for a new corssroads. I am taking the leap of faith to raise my standards in myself and in anyone I choose to be around. I WILL celebrate One Billion Rising this year by ending the struggle I had had and healing to become a more whole and complete person.. This is my life and I only have one to celebrate. I am alive.
