I would like to thank my two therapists, Phyllis and Brenda, for giving me endless support while leaving my abusive relationship. Each time I needed it, they reminded me that I deserved to not live in fear. That this was the hard thing to do, but the right thing to do. I want to thank Paula, the sweet police officer who helped me in the process of getting legal documentation to keep my abuser away. She gave me so much strength and support. She said, "Don't look back and make it happy. Accept what it was instead of holding onto the potential."
