Yesterday, on February 14th, 2013 I joined a billion women in over 200 countries to RISE and stand to eradicate violence against women in our world. As I listened to the stories of the women of my community, women who I know and love.. I was deeply moved to hear how many of them suffered in their own lives.... and how incredibly resilient
and strong the were to say no, to make hard choice, and (in some cases) to stand up for their children and future children. It really touched me in a place that I thought was completely healed.. but again felt the rawness. The fact is that I had a child with an abuser, and even though I left, my child still feels the effects of that person. I want to let anyone who is going through that pain - that I know what it's like..., and you're okay. It's all okay. I feel it too, and I know how hard it is to understand and see the perfection and the beauty in it. I want to let my son know that I'm "in his corner", and doing everything in my power to change the world and how it operates. I want to offer any woman who is being abused, controlled or manipulated - Call me. I know where you are at, and I will listen, I will talk with you, and offer direction and assistance - completely free of charge -- to take your next steps. Heck, I will just sit with you in silence, because I know how hard it is to talk about it - and I know that it feels good to just sit with someone and not be alone.
