I am a fourteen and half year survivor of domestic violence. There are six counts of domestic violence in New Jersey: emotional, verbal, physical, sexual, stalking and financial and I hit it on all six. However, I don’t want to talk about the ugliness of the marriage; I want to share my Awakening and Rebirth Along the Journey of Hope. I began speaking first a survivor, second as an academic, third as an advocate and fourth as an expert in gender-based violence. When I first left my batterer, a woman said to me “You should be excited, you are starting a journey and can be whomever you want to be.” I thought she hadn’t understood what I was telling her and felt more distressed, but she was right and here I am today.https://thevoicedomesticviolencesurvivors.com
