Most importantly, we write to reassure you that if you are a survivor of violence, it is not your fault. You do not deserve to live in violence. You did not do anything to cause it. You are not responsible for the actions of your abuser. You have the right to live happily and to feel loved, cherished, and respected. You are not defined by the violence you have faced or continue to face. You are a whole human being born with the undeniable right to have control over your own body and live a life without physical, sexual, or emotional violence and intimidation. and you are not alone in your journey to freedom.
