Daniel’s Story

male

A few years back, my life changed forever all at once.  As a result, I found my life tail spinning out of control and it was emotionally overwhelming.  I was involved in a domestic violent relationship.  As a male, it was difficult to admit or accept.  I was raised to believe that this does not happen to men, or as a gay man, must have deserved what happened.

Immediately, once I realized I was not able to change things on my own, I swallowed my pride and sought help.  This led me to CCS.  Upon entering the doors, I immediately felt the support and safety of the staff.  This professionalism was vital in my success to surviving domestic violence. I gained the resources and tools to learn how to break the cycle in my life.

Personally, the most important was being able to open up without judgement, and to have my own thoughts and feelings mirrored back to me so that I could best process all my experiences and make healthy decisions moving forward.

My encouragement to all who read this is that there is no shame in doing whatever is necessary to make your life healthier and happier.  Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
