Although the two co-exist, one does not cause the other. According to research, most abusers do not have substance use problems, nor are persons who abuse substances violent.

Words from a Survivor of Domestic Violence

Words from a Survivor of Domestic Violence
Safe Harbor Voice  |  August 11, 2021

My name is Linda and I’m a survivor of domestic violence. I was inspired to contribute to this month’s blog by something I received in the mail.

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
