BENEFITING: COVINGTON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TASK FORCE
EVENT DATE: Sep 30, 2017
About a year ago I started writing a story on the episode ap, the goal was to gain closure for something as well as help people that might be going throught some of the same things I did by telling a little of my story. As I wrote my story I realized a lot about my life, specifically high school and realized what actually transpired between my ex and I, not what I wanted to believe.
While I have been in the episode community I have met many incredible people, we have exchanged stories and been there for eachother through the best and worst times of our lives, I even met my best friends. A couple of them have been in abusive relationships but eventually got out. My best friend told me she is currently in an abusive relatioship, her husband is abusive to her, they argue all the time and say they want a divorce. She told me she wanted to leave but didn't know how to be a single mom and go to school as well as have a carreer. I finally convinced her to leave him and start a better life for her and her child, unfortunatley that only lasted for a couple weeks, she told me she couldn't handle being a single mom and everything going on in her life and went back to her husband. My heart hurts knowing what she is going through and I pray for her to find the strength to be able to leave and feel that she can make it.
