Tonight will be a very difficult show for me. I have kept too many secrets for too long. Those secrets have caused me to hold on to toxic relationships too long while letting go of quality relationships because I was too damaged to appreciate them or I just didn’t know they were quality relationships.

For years I’ve been haunted by the memories of being beaten and kicked in the stomach when I was seven months pregnant. I was active duty Navy and had reported my abusive husband several times. However, I received no protection, no medical care, and my ex-husband continued to be promoted to higher military ranks. That was more than 26 years ago; but the abuse continued for another two years until I had the emotional and psychological strength to finally leave. Why did I stay for almost five years? Tune in and I’ll share more because it’s really time for us women to lets’ just talk. There can be no more secrets.
