My six word biography
The depths of my soul awakens
I wrote this statement because I feel like a butterfly that has awaken from its slumber. As a young woman, I felt like I was captured in an unpleasant abyss. No where to turn, no voice to speak; silent in my pain. No one knew, what I went through; the misery I endured. Someone else was controlling my every move. As time went on, I became so petrified ; paralyzed from head to toe. I could not breathe; I felt like dieing .What was I to do? I had no friends to confide it.I had no way out, I was lost or so it seemed. This part of my life I tried so hard to hide. Until one day, this person came to me and asked “What’s wrong” I replied, nothing and then she replied “I know you more than you know yourself” So, “Please dear do not fight the pain”. I knew this was the one person I could confide in and tell this horrible secret to. The one person who loved me and would never leave my side. She has been there since my birth; through thick and thin; she is my best friend. This person that I hold dear is my Mother. My mother gave me the strength to leave a life of agony. There is hope after all; Now I feel like shouting ; hurray! I have found myself and feel a sense of worth beyond belief. I am survivor of Domestic Violence! Now the depths of my soul have meaning! The will to carry on.
