Breaking the Cycle of Abuse
I was introduced to a friend of my nephew's, a beautiful young woman who was in a similar abusive situation I'd found myself in at her age. When I met her I wanted her to know that she was not alone that other woman live in fear of their significant other and that we are not the responsible for their actions, only ourselves. We bonded quickly over that conversation and she told me she wanted out, but didn't feel she was strong enough.
My daughter gave me my giving key almost three years ago at a time I was sick, and although I had survived a long domestic violence situation, I'd come out on top feeling weak and didn't know if I had the strength to continue with my treatment. I wore my key with gratitude and wondered if I would know when it was time to give it away. As soon as I communicated my former circumstances with my new young friend I knew it would go to her. I felt so strong when I saw her face after giving her the key I could see the STRENGTH entering her heart, mind, and soul . I knew at that moment that she was going to alright.
