Las mujeres somos valiosas y hermosas -JL



Yo, JL fui una mujer abusade por 8 ½ años. Sufrí todos tipos de abuso pero espero el día adecuado y me escape. Mi exesposo fue abusador, posesivo, egoísta, manipulador, tacaño y machista. Me decía que yo no era nadie; mujeres, yo sé que así como yo fui  víctima de ese infame hombre asimismo hay  muchas de ustedes que están viviendo lo mismo que yo pasé, pero debemos parar los abusos.

Dios ha sido mi fuerza y sabiduría y cuando  tuve la oportunidad de escapar lo hice, logre salvar mi vida y libertad. Salí de las garras de la muerte, de las manos de mi exesposo.

Mujeres, nacimos de una madre no de un hombre abusador y cobarde. Creen que somos objetos de ellos. Nosotras, las mujeres somos valiosas y hermosas.

Safe Harbor es una institución que me ayudó a mí y si ustedes buscan también le ayudarán. Son muy buenos, mando este mensaje y seguiré haciéndolo porque no quiero que ninguna mujer siga pasando lo que yo viví.


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.”
