Domestic violence taught me I was a strong woman when I thought I could not escape. I did and will never ever look back only forward. ~ Diane Costa
I never let go of who I was and I think that’s what made me strong enough to break the cycle and never return to a life like that. Always wondering if you say you love me so much why can’t you at least try to be nice to me let a lone decent. You have to hold on to who you really are because that’s exactly what they are trying to break. ~ Lisa Vanderkruk
One you loose trust and faith, there is an innocents lost. You can never get it back. ~ Lee Beck
Cancer taught me that you are stronger than you think you are. ~ Janet Calhoun
You see a lot in loss. I think the continual losses in my life have shown me what’s really gain. No, we are never the same and nor should we be.

I am not even the same as I was a year ago. ~ Jenny Vierstraete
Living 10 years in another country made me and now I am back in my home country and shall never look back. That experience has made me stronger than Iron Man now. ~ Debbie Fry
Almost died, that changed everything. You don’t fool around when you are granted a second chance. ~ Dorinda Coolon
We have our battle scars and war wounds. Sometimes God leaves the scars not to remind us that we messed up, but to remind us never to go there again.
