I am...

05 September 2013, 19:13

I am 33 years old. I have brown hair and brown eyes. I have a good job, an okay car and 2 children. 2 dogs and a cat. I am funny (I think?!), I'm above average intelligent and I have a personality larger than life.

I am loud and sometimes a bit overbearing. I don't give way for taxis. I don't let anyone push in when I'm standing in line. I make jokes and I call a spade a spade. I am always the life of the party and I'm always the one that people turn to for advice. I am also an abused woman.

I have been suffering from abuse for the past 6 years. What used to be verbal abuse escalated to full on assault.

It is the second time.

The more I read the more I realise that I have become a statistic. I am that idiot that let it happen once and didn't do anything about it. I am the fool that thought he might change.

I am the idiot that believed him when he said I deserved it.

This time he did it in front of our daughter. This time was the last time.

You have no idea who I am. You have no idea how strong I am inside. This is one woman that will not be yet another statistic again.

I will make a difference. I will change the cycle because you know why? You have NO idea who I am.
