Finding Hope's Sunshine

Bio: I am an ordinary stay at home Mom, hanging on the best I can. I am beautiful, talented, well educated and have been lucky enough to have traveled the world. Some say I have it all, but I carry a terrible secret. I am married to a domestic abuser. Life for me is perpetual survival. I have felt lost and alone, not knowing where to turn. This account is my story and my attempts at letting others know that they are not alone in their journeys.

  1. I was thinking of you today. I’m writing today to try to break from the darkness. I just posted about how this blogging world has helped me, and I included your name in it. It is my way of saying thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support recently. Please take care of yourself.

    • Thank you so much my dear. I am blessed to have you in my life. I am deeply honored to have you mention me as someone who made a difference. Isn’t that what we are all here for, to listen and to care. Here is to our future support sessions. Meghan

  2. Hi
    I stumbled across your blog and I am glad I did. I was brought up in a family where my dad was abusive so I know the damage that kind of relationship can be. Looking forward to the insights you have to share…..God has a plan for you and this is part of it…..God bless


  3. Oh my goodness! I can’t believe there is someone out there who is going through this also. I, like you, am still in this relationship and, up until now, knew no one else who is. I hope we will be able to share this often lonely and painful journey.

  4. I have been victim to domestic abuse I got out of the relationship 3yrs ago. I suffered at his hands for 6yrs. I wrote many things about my feelings and the torchor he was putting me threw. One day I hope to be brave enough to speck about it.
    Am happy and a much stronger lady know.
    I hope you find the strength too. No one should suffer at the hands of another x

  5. I really do not know what to tell you…I know how it is to stay somewhere because of God, because of obedience, all those things. And God wastes nothing…but I was in a situation that my therapist told me was in all ways just like domestic violence minus the actual physical assaults. But mental one, emotional ones, spiritual ones, aggressions and isolations, manipulative overtures just when I was almost strong enough to leave and then once I was back on the hook complete othering and treating me like I was an object again.

    Well…it finally ended, and I am a mess. Oh, God is with me, and I am going to heal and move on. But I had no idea I was so devastated and absolutely shattered. I see the things now? And wonder how I could have stayed, think to myself that I must have truly been hating myself, despising myself…

    …I don’t even know, it is still so fresh, all that I am seeing in the aftermath. Please know that I am praying with you and have a tender heart for you. I get it…if you are staying and for whatever reason, it is reason enough. And I add my story here in microcosm so that it might be occasion to get a glimpse of a possible future state of being where you might see that you did not have to stay where you are…and I totally TOTALLY say that in complete affirmation and support of you, with absolutely no comment or even preference about your choice…

    …you are courageous…you are paying a precious price, and that is worthy and will never ever be valueless to God, no matter what.

    Ohhh Sister, please PLEASE forgive me if I have wounded or hurt by posting. I get the posts from trolls and bullies who come on my site and “speak the truth in love” and end up adding words like fists and accusations like kicks, so if I have in ANY way done that I am wretchedly undone with myself.

    I just wanted you to know…I get it…and now, for me, I ask why, and apply myself to healing from the torn and ripped up soul I am left with now. Not defeated, but yeah, hurting soo badly.

    May Blessed Jesus and Holy Spirit who has introduced as “Mama” to me, channeling Proverbs where WIsdom speaks…may They be present, in full compassion and grace, and may the payers of our great high priest who sits at the right hand of the Father be heard…for you, and for me too…and may we find the confidence to draw near that Throne, for Jesus has given us that confidence thru His broken body, and by His blood that was shed so that we can indeed draw near, with pure hearts full of faith and confidence and cleansed of all guilty conscience by the washing of Their pure water…

    …together with you, I will put my hope and trust in Them, for They are faithful.

    Deep heartfelt identification, and much love and grace to you…

    We hope in you for you are faithful
    Yes you are faithful

  6. Hi Meghan, after you had commented on my blog, I had to come check out your page to know more about you. You really are a strong woman and I hope and pray that you overcome all the difficulties of your personal life. And since you have found God to be on your side, I’m sure you will 🙂

    • Thank you. I am glad that you took a deeper look at who I am. I try to rise above my situation. By being an encouragement to others I am helping myself. Thank you for blessing me with a follow. Hugs sent your way. Meghan
