I wanted to be safe and far away with my son. I knew that the only way that could happen would be to move out of the place that I shared with husband so that I could get a place of my own. I’d never lived alone before, and I didn’t know if I would be able to visit enough Norcross GA apartments in time to rent a unit before my husband picked a fight with me again. Time was not on my side, and I wanted to get our son out of the apartment as soon as possible. I don’t have any nearby relatives or friends, so I knew that I needed to do something quickly.
My husband had been very abusive for too many years. I always worried that he would hurt our child, yet I was too weak to leave the situation for a long time. But one day, when my husband took a swing at me and almost hit our son, I knew that the relationship needed to be over. I do not want to bring up a child in a horrible situation. I did not want to be the one at fault for teaching my child that being abusive is okay. I did not want him to end up in the hospital either if his father accidentally hit him. Taking steps to get away seemed so scary to me, but I had to do it for my child’s safety.
I ended up leaving the house one day with a list of apartment complex phone numbers to call. I didn’t really care what type of place I found, as long as I felt safe and the price was good. In the end, I found a two bedroom apartment that is really cute and costs far less than I thought it would. My son loves his new bedroom in our new place. In the meantime, I have now contacted an attorney about getting a divorce. I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel.
