Read after the cut...

"Two years ago I would get to work with tears in my eyes, pain in my heart and body, marks on my face and body. A doctor's appointment was an everyday medication. The doctors insisted I get my husband arrested(I wasn't even married). I wanted to leave, but I had nowhere to go, was I going to live on the 3rdmainland bridge? So I endured all the pains of domestic violence from my aunt till I got punched in the eye resulted to internal eye bleeding and a knife was pulled out to take my life away...'God was my strength' I had gone through this for five good years, I was 22 and couldn't get home a lil bit after 7pm without a slap to say me welcome, i couldn't even go on official trips without her fists coming out to play, I couldn't even have friends over I was still being beaten like a slave and a 2yr Old Child! I moved out with Nuin in my pocket, just my bestfriend and sister @teema_diva (little wonder why I love u so much) by my side and prayers. Hey I ain't dead but alive, might have been but I took a chance and a leap of faith, say NO TO DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, it's better late than never. I still have my scars but they only remind to be stronger whenever I feel like giving up. I CAN SPEAK BECAUSE I AINT DEAD. SEEK HELP IF YOU MUST, STOP SUFFERING IN SILENCE. #thinkaboutyou"
