Overcoming Abuse

I have always been known as the guy who never did anything right, as a kid I got in trouble with the police, got in trouble at school … if someone could screw it up it was me. My first sense of doing something right, that I felt proud about, was when I got married.…someone was going to marry this guy.

When I got married, it was bad from day one, probably had been bad even before that. I took everything out on the people who cared about me, my wife and my kids. I did bad things to them. I have a lot of shame and guilt that doesn’t go away. My wife was too afraid to ask me to change, my daughters couldn’t either – imagine your kids being afraid of their dad.

United Way of Thunder Bay is leading the way to a better community by improving the quality of life for all local people. By collaborating with community partners, we are leading the way to addressing social issues in our community and investing in three critical areas: Poverty, Kids and Strong Communities. Donations to the United Way are strategically invested across Thunder Bay to many vital programs and initiatives in these areas, creating a social safety net that works to achieve lasting change for our neighbours, families and friends.
