La sombra detrás de mí: Una historia de acoso

La sombra detrás de mí: Una historia de acoso
Safe Harbor Voice  |  January 6, 2022

Casi de inmediato me di cuenta que me estaban siguiendo. Mi plan original era quedarme en el mismo estado, pero ahora con los faros en mi retrovisor, seguí conduciendo.  Conducí a través del país tratando de alejarme del dolor, las heridas, y el miedo. Mi hijo y yo entramos a un albergue para víctimas de la violencia doméstica en otro estado. Tenía miedo pero empezaba a sentirme segura.

Así como no hay un ‘yo’ en el ‘trabajo de equipo', no habría un ‘24/7’ en los servicios de Safe Harbor sin nuestro Equipo de Vida Comunitaria, quienes hacen que nuestros albergues operen las 24 horas, 7 días a la semana. Nuestro Equipo de Vida Comunitaria trabaja días, noches, y fines de semanas para realizar las necesidades y mantener la seguridad y bienestar de los residentes de nuestros albergues en Greenville, Anderson, y Oconee.

Safe Harbor’s Community Living team work days, nights and weekends to meet needs and maintain the safety and well-being of our shelter residents and children in our three shelters.

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
