This past week was the end of another amazing support group here in the Vancouver area. At the close of the evening, women shared what the 10 weeks had meant to them. They talked about the power of being listened to, respected and affirmed. They spoke of how wonderful it was to be in a room with others who had “been there”. For many women, this group had become an important “lifeline” through a very challenging time in their life.
I was reminded again of the amazing power of support groups. If you are reading this blog and are in an abusive relationship, I hope you can find a support group. (Your local transition house or shelter may know of one.) You are in a very challenging time in your life and you deserve all the support you can get.
