I AM a conqueror...

by Tracy McCauley

I am not just a survivor of domestic violence. I AM a conqueror! I have decided to make it my life’s mission to not only conquer within my personal life but also help others conquer as well. Conquering for me means not allowing my past hurts to rule in my life today. It means giving myself time to process and heal from what tried to prevent me from moving forward. It means healing from the inside out and beginning to reaffirm who I am.

Not only am I a conqueror, but I am also resilient! I was able to bounce back several times from the hurt, pain, disappointment and abuse that tried to hold me back from my God given purpose. I was determined to have a healthy household not only for myself but also for my daughter.

I am also fearless, because I have decided that life, my life in particular is precious and worthy of stepping out and using my voice to tell everyone my story.

I AM A CONQUEROR!! I AM RESILIENT! I AM FEARLESS! I AM PRECIOUS! I AM WORTHY!

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused...

I am a survivor of domestic violence.


“I didn’t know that I was being abused because my definition of abuse looked different. My husband pushed me, but most of my suffering was verbal and psychological. I left my husband to protect our young daughter. Almost immediately I felt the weight of his oppression begin to lift. I could see a difference in my daughter as well. Then he broke into my home and assaulted me in-front of her.

I sought help and was led to Safe Harbor. My daughter and I are in counseling now. I am sorting out the mess that abuse has caused. I am finding my voice and seeking opportunities to grow and better my life as well as my daughter's. She will gauge her self-worth from my own self-worth. I must show her that she deserves the best, by expecting the best for myself.

Many years I suffered in silence. By telling my story and being honest with friends and family, I am taking control of my life again.”
