Referral Corner

-- Quote of the Day -- 

“…Pack some stuff up that you can hide (from the abuser), that you can grab and go, and never look back. You need to have someone to call, even if it is the hotline. …You have to talk about it, I know you don’t want to talk about it, but you have to or it will just build up inside you and you’ll end up staying or never getting out alive. Believe in yourself; there is something else out there for you. …There is no excuse for abuse; it should not be tolerated by anyone. Nobody has the right to put their hand on you; to harm you. Love yourself and know that you are worth something; respect yourself. …Believe in yourself – that you can do anything. …Seek out help and talk about it… and get out.”

~ Susan Dean

Today’s quote originates from the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio episode that aired back on … titled: Domestic Violence
