Thank You For Surviving!

Dear Survivor,

Has anyone ever told you thank you for surviving? If not, then I would like to be the first person to tell you, so here it goes: THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR SURVIVING! Now, some may be wondering, why I decided to say that or what that really means. What it means is that, surviving domestic violence is more than just leaving or escaping an unhealthy relationship, because even after you do that, you still have to SURVIVE. A lot of people do not understand what domestic violence survivors go through on a daily basis, they have to fight emotions, block out negative thoughts, maybe even tune out negative people, they have to learn to love themselves again, they have to learn to believe in themselves again, they have to believe they are are worth living, they have to learn to trust again and most importantly they have to HEAL!

Surviving is not something that happens overnight, surviving is something that you do everyday, so from one survivor to another, I just really wanted to say THANK YOU FOR SURVIVING because your survival gives someone else strength to survive. For those who may have lost a loved one due to domestic violence, if you are reading this, I want to you know that even though the person that you lost may not be here physically, they still survived and they are in a much better place in Heaven. They fought for their lives everyday and they did survive and now their legacy lives on within you and when a person has a legacy, when a person is so powerful that they can touch many lives even when they are not here on earth, that means they survived.

Also, to the families of those who lost a loved one, I want you also THANK YOU FOR SURVIVING because your survival will also give someone else strength to survive. Pain has purpose and we may not understand it at time time, but eventually God will help us make sense of us it and He will give us peace, strength, and purpose.

I thank you all for reading! In fact, now that I am writing, let me take the time out to thank my readers, if it was not for you all, no one would even know about this blog, you all give me strength to write. I know sometimes I slack as far as how much I blog, but you all have been tremendous with your support and I thank you.

God Bless,

  5. I had a friend also going through a divorce at the same time I was. He noticed how happy I could still be and he asked how I do it. My reply was " I don't. I fake it." But thank you for saying thank you. I guess I didn't fully realize how difficult surviving can be. Thank you for surviving too!
