Welcome Home Queen!
I'm Tracy Lynn, blog writer, motivational speaker, registered nurse and domestic violence advocate. I am also passionate member of the National Coalition Against Domestic https://ncadv.org. My work has been published in Thrive Global, Women Owned Business Club Magazine and Womelle Leadership Magazine. I started this blog to write about the challenges and blessings of living life as a single woman.
Although the blog is Christian based, there will be something here for everyone. NO matter where you came from or where you are going you will find inspiration here.
As a travel registered nurse I have traveled extensively across the United States and have worked with and advocated for patients worldwide. I have had the privilege to work in some of our top Level I Trauma and Teaching Hospitals in the world to include Yale Hospital In New Haven Connecticut. I have met and worked with some of the finest people our country has to offer.
Physical Violence IS NOT The Only Sign Of Danger
Almost 30 years ago I lost a beautiful, kind, considerate and compassionate person in my life. I lost a good friend. .Her name was Gina. Gina had decided to leave a relationship that was filled with jealousy and controlling behavior. Her boyfriend at the time had not yet been physically violent . He only displayed control and jealousy at the time she decided to end the relationship. .She only knew that the relationship was confusing, suffocating and controlling .She had no idea of the tremendous danger she was really in. None of us who loved and cared for her could have imagined the horror that would happen next.
When she decided to end the relationship, she was then physically assaulted for the first and only time. Months after leaving this relationship. she was stalked and harassed until one day that ex boyfriend tragically ended her life... All because she just simply did not want to be in an abusive relationship. The world lost a sweet soul that day, I lost a dear friend and her family lost a piece of their heart they will never get back.
Domestic Abuse/Violence Can Happen To Anyone, Anywhere And At Anytime
As a nurse working as a medical and emergency room case manager , I have worked with domestic violence victims for over 15 years. of my career. My years of advocating for domestic violence victims never prepared me for the day I found myself in an abusive relationship AFTER my divorce and reentering the dating scene. .
Along my singles journey, I lost my way, I had forgotten whose daughter I was. One day I simply woke up and the game changed. I remembered I was the daughter of King. I remembered that I just like many of you, was born into his royal family. I was born free with a duty and obligation to him and myself to live a life free from the shackles and shame of abuse.
After the tornado of domestic violence ripped through my own life, I was faced with only two choices. I could become another domestic violence statistic of staying stuck in an abusive relationship. The other choice was to fight for the survival of my self worth, self esteem and my self dignity and my human rights to live a life free from abuse.
I chose the one choice that would have the best outcome and the only one God would desire for me. . I made the difficult choice to regain the life of the freedom I was born into. Although, the blog will provide crucial information on issues of domestic violence, it will, most importantly ,serve to assist victims in moving beyond the state of victim hood into their own personal victory.
This blog is not just for domestic violence victims and survivors, it is for all women who are single or who may be on the verge of becoming single .

Although this blog will be a platform to bring awareness, and education about the issue of domestic violence and narcissist abuse is not meant to substitute the critical and vital role of psychotherapy in the treatment of the trauma and aftermath of abuse.
Education and awareness is only the first step in claiming your victory and freeing yourself from the shackles and shame of abuse.
