Show your support for NO MORE domestic violence and sexual assault
No more "if it was that bad, she should have just left", no more "I would have never allowed that to happen to me", and no more "I wish a man would try that with me".
As the survivor of domestic violence, I've heard all of these things more than once. The only way I know to explain things is to say that my perpetrator tried to end my life on multiple occasions. This fear for my life made me stay. I left him when I decided I no longer wanted to live like this and if that meant he was going to kill me, it was better than what I was experiencing.
Let me say that again... I stayed because I didn't want to die and I left because I didn't care about dying anymore.
I DIDN'T CARE IF I DIED, IF THAT MEANT I DIDN'T HAVE TO EXPERIENCE THE ABUSE ANYMORE.
I wish that feeling on no other person. Casey
