Many Different Forms Of Abuse

Forms of Abuse, Domestic Violence, Abuse

Many different forms of abuse.

This is Friday, October 2nd; for the most part, we are all aware that the month of October has been labeled as Domestic Violence Month. If you are not aware, well, this is the month to make sure you aware :).

Welcome!

I am welcoming you, although domestic violence should be exposed more regularly than once a year, in October, longer than 30 days. (just my opinion)

Because according to these stats;

On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men.

From the looks of things, WE need to bring greater awareness to this situation.

Domestic Violence is defined as:

violent or aggressive behavior within the home, typically involving the violent abuse of a spouse or partner.

ANY AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR IS ABUSE!

DOMESTIC AGGRESSION IS ABUSE!

I am so passionate about explaining domestic violence because it was a decade later after my relationship had ended that I connected my relationship/household to say, “I was in a Domestic Violence Relationship”.

Domestic violence

is structured to make a victim

obey the laws of the abuser.

When I was in high school, I started dating a man that had already graduated from high school, and he was in the military; he was fine; he filled my head up with dreams and my heart up with false perception.

And I was soooo in love.

SOOOOO in love, and it blinded my eyes to see that he wasn’t in love with me.

He had no respect for me.

I kept trying after every attack from him. Trying to make right what I did not make wrong!

Never Ever Considering that I was structured to accept and obey the rules of an abuser.

Why?

I will tell you why!

Because we often only classify Domestic Violence with physical abuse, there is more to Domestic Violence then getting;

Punched.

Slapped.

Pinched.

Stabbed.

Shoved.

Hit.

We disregard these other forms of abuse; Many Different Forms of Abuse

Sexually Abuse – “Married or Unmarried, will force you to have sex because I own you.”

Emotional Abuse – “Will tell you that you are ugly, ain’t nobody gonna want you.”

Mental Abuse – “Will make everything your fault.”

Controlling – “Will isolate you from people who love you.”

Physical (we all know this one) “

I had never classified these situations as abuse until I was told by a friend decades later, you are a survivor of domestic violence. My friend had to bring to my attention that I was battling a hidden cycle of pain because I never knew I fought and made it out of a Domestic Violence Situation.

Do not get me wrong, I knew I haven’t been treated right, but I never linked it to the word Domestic Violence because we often overlook the other forms of abuse if the punching, kicking, or pinching was not that bad –

he only kicked me down the hill because he loves me. (that is the biggest lie that the enemy(satan) himself encourages you to tell yourself)

That was my thinking – (we think this way when we do not know our WORTH)

Then life kept happening, and I had to

realize that love doesn’t send you into depression, love doesn’t send you into suicidal thinking –

NOT THAT TRUE LOVE – NOT THAT GOD KINDA LOVE

Yes – physical abuse is an effective form of Domestic Violence; I just wanted to point out a few more that I never considered.

Examine your situation and consider he may not hit you, but he is killing your self-worth, that is Domestic Violence.

Sexually Abuse – “Married or Unmarried, will force you to have sex because I own you.”

Emotional Abuse – “Will tell you that you are ugly, ain’t nobody gonna want you.”

Controlling – “Will isolate you from people who love you.”

Physical (we all know this one) “
