I will not allow others to berate, manipulate, condescend or abuse me. I have thoughts and feelings of my own and I know what I like and what I don't. When someone mistreats me and I don't like it, I will say everything that I have to say and leave the argument or situation knowing that I stood up for myself. I will not just bend, and sway to there ways. Allow others to use me as their puppet or punching bag. If I feel berated or abused, I will not stay in the relationship. I will not fear for my life and safety, I will JUST LEAVE. Head to someone who CAN help...a police officer, teacher, counselor, principal. If the first person doesn't help, I will go to another one. I will not stop until I am safe. I will make my safety and happiness a goal for 2007! I am a survivor not victims. If I do not leave an abusive (verbally or physical) relationship, it is my CHOICE! I do not make BAD CHOICES! The health, safety and well being of my body is all I have and it is sacred!
