Dating violence is an intentional act of violence (whether physical, sexual or emotional) by one partner in a dating relationship.

Victims of dating violence may experience one incident of dating violence or it could be an ongoing pattern of several different types of incidents.

It can occur in any type of relationship, regardless of a person's sexual orientation, age or gender and both males and females can experience dating violence.

Physical abuse is dangerous but psychological abuse is deeply-rooted.

In those moments, I desperately needed somebody who understood.

I tried to leave a few times, he would threaten to commit suicide, or worse. Nobody knew about the head butts each time he didn't agree with something I did or didn't do.

The relationship took an emotional toll to the point where I was getting severe panic attacks. Nobody knew the reason my windshield had shattered was because he had punched it in a fit of rage over what I had worn to school that day. I knew if I stayed, all of those dreams I had when I was a little girl would never be realized. I broke up with him and moved out of the state a week later.

I now live an extraordinary life full of purpose, with a grand vision to change the world.

I have married the man of my dreams which would not have been possible if I hadn't worked to change my beliefs about myself.

Today, my mission is to help survivors of domestic violence reclaim their power, forgive themselves, repair their brokenness, heal their soul, and discover their magic.

For all of those times he said I was ugly and worthless, I have made it my mission.

I am not bitter or resentful, I forgave him the day I left, but I knew I wanted more out of life.
