It amazed me how many of my friends posted #MeToo on their social media pages. Yet, I did not.
I wondered, “How many other women out there are not posting #MeToo on social media because they felt like me.” We are embarrassed, ashamed, too scared to share and petrified to type those two words because it might seem like an admission of a wrong or a memory we choose to bury.
More than 25 years ago, I was in an abusive marriage, and I was filled with fear and no hope. I felt like I was nothing, and I truly believed I had no way out. I prayed in desperation for God to take my husband’s life or mine.
Then God opened a door for me. And I know, with the Grace of God, I will heal completely.
