Casey Morley pens personal story of abuse to help other victims heal.
Southington, Conn. (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Safe Horizon, the largest victim’s advocacy group in the United States, estimates that more than three million children witness domestic violence and abuse in their homes. Without help, the advocacy group states, girls in particular are more vulnerable to further abuse as teenagers and adults.
Author Casey Morley has lived through this harrowing succession and come out on the other side. Her new book, “Crawling Out: One Woman’s Journey to an Empowered Life after Breaking a Cycle of Abuse No One Should Have to Endure” (published by Balboa Press), is her startling account of the domestic abuse she endured throughout her life and how she broke the cycle and put an end to it.
“Crawling Out” documents Morley’s life through abuse to her eventual breakthrough. Growing up, Morley experienced unending domestic violence, alcoholism and abuse within her family. Based on the messages received as a child, Morley continued to live in the cycle of abuse as an adult.
After enduring over 50 years of abuse, Morley finally broke the cycle. Her resilience, courage and determination helped her overcome the toughest obstacles, and she has made it her goal to pass on a message of hope to other victims of domestic violence and abuse.
“I am on a mission to help victims of domestic violence to see things in a new light,” Morley writes passionately. “I believe by sharing my story it will give them permission to unmask the secrecy, shed the shame and guilt that was never theirs to carry.”
