You are a warrior. Warriors don’t give up. Don’t back out. So pick up your shield and sword and fight.

“If you have survived an abuser and you tried to make things right. If you forgave and you struggled, and even if the expression of your grief and your anger tumbled out at times in too much rage and too many words and actions—- If you spent years hanging on to the concepts of faith, hope and love, even after you knew in your heart that those intangibles, upon which life is formed and sustained, would fail in the end—And especially, if you stood between your children— or anyone— and that abuser, and took the physical, emotional and spiritual pummelling in your stead, then, darling, You are a hero.”
