The will to leave....
( Montgomery al)
It's Not Easy as one may think for a woman to leave an abusive relationship. I never understood this until I became an advocate for women caught in the middle of family violence and love....it's easy for everyone to say what they would do "IF" it was them. However, noone knows what they will do until they're actually walking in those shoes.
I have found out from speaking with many women that sometimes it's best Not to give your ill opinion, but definitely be there for support to listen to an individual who is experiencing the abuse. Many times just having someone to talk to is more Help than we realize.
I'm in the process of opening HAGAR'S HOPE a battered women's & children shelter in a rural area that has never ever had a women shelter. My prayers are that every town or city has at least one shelter that a woman can turn to when she needs a safe place of refuge that is free of violence.
