A New Approach
When we accept and embrace our imperfections without shame, they become sources of strength and power.
At morethan1victim, our mission is to end domestic violence by introducing a proactive approach to address the global social crisis we face. To date, all implemented measures have been reactive and only serve as damage control, failing to produce positive results. We have ignored the problem’s root cause. It is a fact and a costly mistake not to recognize that everyone in the household is a victim who needs healing because we are now dealing with a societal pandemic. We were already victims of circumstances connected to the environments from our childhood before we became a statistic of domestic violence.
For this reason, our top priority is to highlight the importance of providing safe home environments for our children, who are the most vulnerable victims. We must begin by removing the labels of “victim” and “abuser” and support all affected equally; this is the solution. We need to seize the opportunity to act as agents of change. Our proactive strategy focuses on achieving this objective.
The whole truth
about domestic violence
God, my purpose,
and my passion
The stories we write behind closed doors differ from those we share publicly; this is true for all of us but more so for victims of abuse who live in unhealthy and dangerous environments. After healing me from a harmful and destructive lifestyle, God called me to speak out on this highly uncomfortable topic. He has entrusted me with the task of sharing my story in a distinct and unprecedented way. It is a never-before-narrated version; you can say it is a behind-the-scenes version of Domestic Violence. And that is not all; God is in the midst of my story. I am confident He enlightened me with the solution because He has a view into our lives and homes from every possible angle and knows all the characters. God holds the key to opening the doors of the self-inflicted prison sentences our lives have become. I must disclose that although His way is undoubtedly the answer, it is highly uncomfortable because we must practice complete transparency and accountability. As most of us know, it is improbable for us to use these practices. However, they are the key we must use to set ourselves free. Fear and shame at first were holding me back. Then God reminded me that you and I have more in common than I know because we all have more than one version of our stories; but we opt to share the one with the slightest shame. We should never be ashamed to admit our need for healing. On the contrary, accountability will set you free and empower you to live the life God intended for you.
