My Journey

Domestic Violence Victim to Survivor

Once I served as a volunteer and advocate for those affected by domestic violence, I saw and heard a lot. Then I became a victim. I experienced first-hand what I had worked hard to bring awareness to business, organizations, and faith groups. I quickly realized each experience of violence has its own story.


About Domestic Violence

My personal suffering included years of medical treatments, counseling, courts, and navigation social service agencies for the basics. An individual whose life is going well, these entities’ processes and requirements are easy to go through. As a victim, however, the challenges of navigating these services can knock you down when you’re not sure of yourself.


Getting Back on My Feet

I recognized through months of therapy if I could help one person transition from victim to survivorship, I would. Through levels of healing, I embraced my diverse heritage, incorporating traditions into my holistic journey. This journey is a matter of faith, not fact.



Changing Mindsets

I took my experiences; I had journaled and began writing. Writing helped me recognized a more immediate need. I needed people to hear my voice without giving me platitudes. A counselor and an attorney who noted my evolution in changing my mindset from a victim encouraged me to share my change process. Working privately with others in similar circumstances, Listening Ear or L’Ear were born.

My Story

When I began this journey navigating from victim of domestic violence to survivor to speaking with you, it was not my counselor, therapist, doctor, or best friend who gave me a piece of advice that catapulted my way to healing, but a wise grey-haired petite slow-moving stranger.

She and I were in a parking lot, as I was adjusting my oversized sunglasses to hide my horrific swollen black eye. The bruising on my cheekbone and stitches in my forehead were clear. This wise woman—a sage is the only way I can think to describe her—said and I’m paraphrasing,

“Somehow you strayed from your destiny. This is not your destination. There are people who need your gifts. My life is a matter of faith. The facts shaped me.”

In a split second, this strangers’ words showed me my “north star” to healing and creating the life I deserved to live. I had to ask myself some tough questions and begin to glean a plan from their answers. Some of these questions are here, segmented into three areas: My Trauma, My Healing (Self Care) and My Future.

I would suggest you find a place where you can reflect on these statements and journal your responses first. This is your opportunity to take control.
