V is for Violence #AtoZChallenge @AtoZChallenge

VIOLENCE of any kind is unacceptable.

Whether it be verbal, emotional, or physical, it is all a hard NO.

If he punches holes in the walls to scare you, leave.

If he forces you to do things you don’t want to do, leave.

If he hits you once, he will do it again.

At the first opportunity that you can do so safely, leave.

Do not listen to his apologies.

Do not give him a chance to escalate with threats against you, your kids and your family if you leave or tell the cops.

As you’ve heard time and time again, your abuser is only as strong as your silence.

Don’t be ashamed to get out at the first signs of VIOLENCE.

    I’ve never been a violent person and don’t think violence is ever appropriate in the home. Violence isn’t even appropriate in settings like war, but it is the nature of that beast. I think violent acts are just the outward frustrations of not knowing how to express oneself otherwise or the point where neither side is willing to listen to the other and just wants to vent anger or helplessness. Better to walk away sometimes.

  2. Sick of this crap! And the courts serve only to let them own weapons and walk the streets victimizing more women.

    I want to start a support group for battered women. We don’t share our feelings or anything like that. We’d exist to find the numb-nuts girly-men who hit them and beat the crap out of them. End of story.
