I pray God gives us all the strength, just the strength to walk out of an abusive relationship.
Be It an intimate relationship like marriage, dating, cohabition or even family or friends. It is not healthy for anyone to go through that kind of mess for too long. It is damaging, for your own sanity, it's advisable to leave.
It is important to remember that abuse is always intentional, and can not happen by accident. has many forms, including:
Physical Abuse: This is always with aggression. Hitting, kicking, throwing of objects and punching.
Sexual Abuse: This can be from anyone to anyone. Adults and children are being abused sexually by people they trust; spouse, family members and friends.
Emotional abuse: Passing constant criticism to more insidious tactics, such as intimidation, manipulation, and refusal to ever be pleased. Emotional abuse can take many forms; refusing to listen, refusing to communicate, and emotionally withdrawing as punishment. Likewise passing awful verbal remarks.
Financial Abuse: Somepeople actually think this is love and wise. No it's an abuse to withhold money or control all money, including that of other family members.
Social Abuse : Circumscribing your access to social media. Restricting access to friends and family, insulting or threatening friends and family.
Passive/Covert abuse: This abuse is invisible and often is not recognized by onlookers and victims as abuse at all until they are already affected in a psychological way. The victim may see the covert abuse as accidental and that the abuser does not realize what they are doing to them. They use it systematically to crush down the self esteem of the victim and their confidence in their own perception of reality.
Intimidation, stalking, controlling and domineering are not left out.
No abuse is better, but with physical abuse, you have injuries that heal, unlike the other forms of abuse which are so common, yet unnoticed. You may never heal because it cuts #domesticviolence #thedatebook #blogging #abuse #leavetolive #strength #write
