A Letter from Tiffany

I wish I could answer the questions in your mind.

For you I wish that I could turn back time.

I wish I could fix that man you love.

And make his heart soft and pure as a dove.

I don’t have the answers for your questions today, but tomorrow is only a day away.

 

So after you vent and you cry and you rest

Wake up tomorrow and give it your best

Give it your all, after all it’s your life

And remember you’re cheated , you’re cheated by his strife .

It won’t always be easy, you’re in for a fight.

When days are too long, just call it a night.

Eat something tasty, then shower, then pray. Because tomorrow is only a day away.

 

And thank God for life to finally be free.

To be the best woman, best woman you can be.

The best mom, the best daughter, the best friend, the best aunt.

And know that you can, when it seems that you can’t.

I wish you the best as you go through each day.

Tomorrow is only a day away.

Sincerely,

 Tiffany

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.”

- Beth
