    Once upon a time, I lived in a household where abuses were exchanged. One led to another. And another. Most of it verbal, psychological, and very hard to prove. When the really bad things happened that left marks, I left. I had to. It was one of those times where you just know, to stay means you won't survive.

This review is hard to write. My family will contact me saying "Thats inappropriate to share. Its private. It didnt happen. Take it down."
That was the 2nd hardest part of abuse. Not being believed by those closest to me. Being silenced when I did talk about it, or having people tell me it wasn't that bad, or better yet: it was my fault.

The hardest part was watching what living in that toxic environment was doing to my 3 kids under age 10 (at the time). I had to leave them to get out. I fought as hard as I could to keep them, but I was alone - what friends I asked couldnt help, and my family wouldnt. I couldnt find a lawyer to take the case pro bono - I went to #TubmanMN aka #Crysalis and a volunteer paralegal gave me good advice... But I was overwhelmed, every time I sought help seemed to come with a consequence.

Listening to the #audiobook #WhenDadHurtsMom by #LundyBancroft broke my heart whenever an example hit close to home, when the written event too closely resembled mine or thoughts I had at the time. The stories about the kids affected, the behavioral problems, the angry outbursts and violence. 
Be brave. Be kind. Even when very few are kind to you. Know that you'll survive and see the other side.

You have to.

They need you.

I believe in you.

If you're a family member who knows abuse is going on in your family somehow, please help them get out. Even if things get uncomfortable, or it seems to fall on deaf ears... Start the conversation. Find them resources. Hold her hand at the divorce hearing. Sometimes being there is all you can do- And its enough. I promise you. Just knowing someone is there for you as your kids and heart are being ripped away from you... gives just enough hope to keep going, to get out, to live another day to fight back.

Whoever you are, whatever you're going through, I love you. Keep going. It will be alright.

    So...something really great happened last week. I attended @andnowsherises first event supporting survivors of domestic violence created by #fierce #boss #powerhouse #dvsurvivors @cakeseeksfrosting and @diymatthews. @andnowsherises collected #cash and #clothing (tons see their website for details) for #tubmanmn. My heart was warm all night, volunteering time to this important cause AND dressing the lovely @kiznasty in new garb. More fun and giving is happening again in a couple weeks so I wanted to share. 
Come hang on Dec 17th @ 7pm, "Under(wear) the Mistletoe" bring $5 or new panties to be donated to those escaping domestic abuse.

    Founder hayley paid a visit and delivered underwear donations to partnered organization @tubmanmn (name honoring power woman and historical figure Harriet Tubman) in Minneapolis today.  We're so inspired by the symbolism behind Harriet Tubman's dedication to persevere toward a walk to freedom -- much like the domestic violence survivors living in this shelter.  We're behind them every step of the way!
