I agree. As a domestic abuse survivor I lived fear and danger. Having been left for dead crawling to my cell phone to dial the police and so scared even through court. The relief I felt that someone at last believed me. The Judge sent me to Abuse counseling where I learned to stand up for myself. I learned for me danger or otherwise I have no fear any longer. God is the only one who has the right to hurt me no one else. I will protect myself and I will survive. I am not afraid to be with God. But no one or anything will scare or hurt me again unless God calls my number. Life is too short not to enjoy, live, have fun and love! I agree we come into this world innocent and the world and people around shape us without our consent or reasoning abilities even. Other people's lives, fears, hopes, ways, mold us and we can become trapped in their world. Never really knowing our core. Some are lucky and find themselves others not. I am learning more the older I get and with freedom. Freedom brings a great price for me as well. Freedom means and has meant loss financially, emotionally, and of family and friends. But to shed the fears I lived I know God will take care of me. I have to believe it will all be great some day! Life is a choice I make.
