Aldiva Romero
This is a prayer for myself and my life


Just got married a little over a month ago, and my husband doesn't show me any love, he hits me, he doesn't respect me, he shows no kindness towards me. I feel as if he married me just to hurt me.


For some reason, I have no luck at love. Men tend to treat me badly and I can't go on like this. I constantly feel like ending my life, but I am too chicken to do it. I was very honest with my husband about my past. He knows I have been in abusive relationships before, and you would think it would make him not want to hurt me since I have already been through so much. But my relationship and marriage seem to be a lie. I ask that you pray for him to either stop hurting me and start loving me as a husband should, or to just get out of my life. I can't do this alone. And I cannot keep on suffering so much. Although sometimes I feel that I was put on this earth mainly to suffer, I know deep down that God has a purpose for my life. I just hope I can find that purpose before it is too late.
Thank you for caring.

Dear Aldiva,

We're sorry you feel so badly right now. We wish we had more help to offer here, but it sounds as if you would benefit from talking to a caring person who is trained to help. We have three resources you could try. We hope you will contact one of them as soon as possible. You deserve to get help, and to get it sooner rather than later.

1. If you are in the U.S., call 1-800-SUICIDE any time, day or night. When you call this free number, you will be connected immediately to a caring, trained counselor in your region. The sooner you make this call, the better.

2. If you can hold on for a few days, free anonymous crisis counseling is available by e-mail from an international charity called Befrienders International (known in this country as The Samaritans). Send an e-mail to Jo@samaritans.org and you will receive a caring response within 24 hours.

3. There is a website you may find helpful, called Suicide: Read This First.

You are in our prayers.

Silent Tears: online support group for survivors of domestic violence

A list of Domestic Violence resources and information

May God bless and protect you.
