I Have Experience With…

Why don't they just leave?

A common question often asked by people who have never been in an abusive relationship. People do not realize survivors will leave an abusive partner 7-12 times before they leave for the last time. Unfortunately, 20% of those survivors who decide to leave end up in a homicide. In this podcast, I talk about what was holding me back from leaving my abusive partner and other contributing factors for why people stay in their abusive or unhealthy relationships.

Light to Life operates under four core values:

We treat every person with acceptance regardless of race, age, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation.

We believe in removing barriers and offering a safe place for individuals to voice their story with no judgements.

We accept individuals who are struggling with dating abuse with understanding and empathy.

Social Responsibility:
We are involved in community events, organizations and schools with respect to authority & the law.

It is not just the information that she disseminates. It is the skill with which Tenaj is able to take a difficult subject and talk to 100 people in a lecture hall setting as though she is having a conversation with them at the kitchen table. She is able to create an incredible atmosphere of trust and kindness while encouraging her audience to make healthy relationship choices in their lives..

Nobody deserves to feel like they’re alone during these times & they need someone to listen and help guide them and that is part of what Light to Life is currently teaching me…

I didn’t realize how cathartic this experience would be until I walked into the room and was greeted by Tenaj’s warm spirit. While speaking with her, I felt comfortable in being vulnerable and speaking on behalf of friends and family’s experiences with hopes that someone else can connect with these stories.
